Alex Salmond Resigns

I'm actually sad to see him go. I didn't always like him, but he fought hard and would not be a pushover as negotiations about further devolution proceed. Perhaps he could have spent a bit of time watching a spider struggle to finally successfully build a web. Ok. Enough with apocryphal analogies, but I think this is the start of big change in Scotland and in the UK. I think he could have played a strong, continuing part in the change.

Voting for a Better Form of Government?

Good analysis by a York University prof (Toronto) of the Scottish Referendum. I'm watching this very carefully, since I fell in love with Scotland after a visit several years ago. I also remember a snooty shopkeeper in Bath who tried to say my Bank of Scotland notes weren't equivalent to the British pound. Of course, she was wrong. Who knows what will happen after September 18.

I hate to say that Cameron's plea of don't break up the family is rather like that of parents who favored one child and neglected the other and now says, "Oh, but all those years we really cared."
