back with a vengence.

Following my triumphant return to Edmonton last Friday, I have a couple of things to say about Lethbridge:

– It’s windy.
– The Lethbridge Lodge is very nice.
– The people in Lethbridge are better looking than the people in Calgary 😉
– The University of Lethbridge has a nice campus (and a very very long hallway).
– It’s windy.

There also seems to be a semblance of political diversity in this fine southern Alberta municipality… Here are the results from the two Lethbridge ridings in the 2004 Provincial General Election (results from Elections Alberta)…
