Jack Layton

August 22, 2011


Its an odd feeling when you can feel the end of your life approaching. Jack Layton saw his. Like he was driving a car. Head on into it. Jack Layton was a politician. Honourable. Courageous. Sometimes I found his good cheer a little annoying. He looked like a Canadian. He had a moustache. When you see characters in American films described as Canadians, they always have moustaches. He knew he was dieing. We all know we’re going to die but there is something different when you can see it directly ahead of you. Like oncoming lights. At night. On the highway. Mr. Layton died of cancer. A good man on a sad day.
