So, thought you'd gotten rid of We, the Staff(TM), had you? Well, We would be gotten rid of, if you cursed peoples would just start listening to Our pleas and have somebody shoot us! We'd do it ourselves, but it gets a little complicated when there's so many of Us. It's much better if We just have someone else do it.
Anywhat, here's an interesting development in the world of politics: The US have backed down in the ongoing trade dispute with Canada regarding softwood lumber. They have reduced their tariffs from an outlandish 18% to a mere 0.8% of the cost of all softwood lumber products coming from Canada. Some of you may recall our rant about Scrawny and Fatass, but it's probably best if you don't. Ahem. So, back to the point, the US have seemingly backed down, at least for the moment. They do state that they intend to continue to appeal this case with NAFTA, and "determine for certain" whether Canada's lumber subsidies are indeed unfair.
We, the Staff (TM) are just impressed the US have budged on an issue like this.
