It’s early, it’s early

8 p.m. MST. Looking around the Round Up Centre one can’t help but feel somber. All the inflatable clappers are silent, no whooping from the crowd. You could almost say the mood around here is well, conservative.

CTV’s Robertson announced the Liberals are ahead by 15 percentage points in Ontario. Oh well, what are you going to do? So close, yet so far for Conservatives, for the West. I guess Harper really is scary in the eyes of the average Ontarian. But maybe I’m being too skeptical, after all, to quote the mood here, “it’s early.”

I asked a barkeep how booze is selling. "Good," he said.

"Getting drunk out of sorrow?" I asked.

He smiled. "They'll get drunk either way."
