Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I am pleased with your assessment of the electoral process here, in Canada. I am NDP as well, but I knew they didn't have a chance this time, what with the powerful swell against Harper. It seemed to be the only thing that mattered—getting him out. However, I still vote NDP, thinking that one of these days, in the distant future, they may win!
