In Which Joan Burke Gets to Do Stuff

Wowies. A media advisory. And one sent out with more than forty minutes notice.

Given that Himself announced the Chancellor Hillier thingie last month, the odds are not good that Joan Burke gets to announce the Presidency thingie this month. (Nor is it terribly likely her availability will involve the phrase "Williams Government".)

2:45 is a funny time.

Isn't there a flight from Stephenville around lunch time and another one back later on this afternoon so she could fly in, spank the reporters and then be home for supper?

Joan doesn't live in St. John's even though that's where the job is.

Nice work if you can get it.

The job of a Williams Government cabinet minister — mopping up the floor after Danny Williams-Government scutters on it — is not my idea of "nice work".
