safety dance

"we can dance if we want to
we can leave your friends behind
'cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
well they're no friends of mine"
(Men Without Hats - Safety Dance, 1982)
so you think you can dance Canada, is on again tonight - the English debate showdown will be taking place. of course, i have better things to do - tonight we will be celebrating the Sacrament of Confession in our parish. i would vote, if there were any leaders to vote for! indeed, why will no one discuss the issues of life? why does everything seem to revolve around the budget? everyone is talking, but nothing is being said. hmm, ... maybe i'm being a little harsh. i have to be careful, since clergy - and i - sometimes do the same thing. we preach, but there's no message. i'm working on it, really i am. our leaders help me realize the promises i did upon ordination:
"believe what you read, teach what you believe, and practise what you teach." (example)
of course, i will vote, and encourage all to do so, but please vote wisely (1, 2). so, don't forget to dance, and go vote May 2, 2011. peace.

update: psst, juste pour rire is on tonight (April 13, 2011) too - the French debate showdown.
