Yes, sorry.
I know it's a genus.

Well, Canada presumably would not adopt a unitary executive Presidential style government.   Having the head of state and head of government be the same person more or less commands at least some of the trappings of monarchy in that person.

M.
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

A colleague who'd worked with me at my most recent institution and in the statewide chapter of our professional organization died August 30 of colorectal and liver cancer. He was in his late 40s. Less than a year ago, it was found and diagnosed; four rounds of chemo didn't shrink the tumors enough to be operable, and they metastasized.

Family, friends, and colleagues were at his memorial service this past Saturday--his "celebration of life," they called it--which was one of the most moving services I've been privileged to attend: The officiant and another speaker read aloud multiple memories supplied by family and longtime friends. Probably 100+ people attended, and for those who couldn't come for various reasons, the service was available virtually as well. The rain made it seem that nature itself was mourning his passing.

He leaves behind a young wife, two children (one adult and one just now a teenager), and many grieving family members, friends, and colleagues--of which I am one. He will be missed.

Cayler Ellingson. Mowed down by a drunk motorist in North Dakota who was upset because he thought Ellingson was a 'republican extremist.'
