I Knew Him Well, Horatio….

Shakespeare FLKR by SuperK8NYC 623118257_e65d55332d_oToday we are visiting someone who knew Stephen Harper as a callow youth—his old English teacher.

Joseph: Yeah. They’re sending us to Canada. What’s up with that?

Mary: You haven’t heard about what’s going on in Canada?

Either that or you slipped them a couple of bills – Continue reading
