TUESDAYS WITH STEPHEN is Collage #33 of my Globe and Mail Project: deconstructing Canada's National Newspaper and putting it back together to try and make sense of the world. All images in this collage are clipped from Saturday's Globe.

Dearest Timothy:

I too was considering proroguing myself in my guise as "employee" but, alas, I am too valuable a commodity to sit fallow.

I do wish our mercurial PM best wishes for his wintry prorogue. May he spend many a day, feet up, warm milk in crystal stemware at his side atop his favourite carved ebony table, as he lazily reaches for the channel changer from its leathery pocket draped over his navy blue velour over-stuffed Laz-y-boy as he peruses the US news stations looking to keep up to date with what's happening in the world out there. Prorogue or no, he has to stay in touch with the People, but he can do it from home, in comfort, and not in that old drafty Parliament.

I suppose we can all identify with that wintery feeling, Caesar. Do you suppose one needs a note from one's Doctor to prorogue? Or is permission from the Governor General sufficient?
