As some of our faithful DAMMIT JANET! readers may have observed by now, I blog from Ottawa. Being born and growing up in this city has not provided me with any particularly trenchant skills or talents for nosing out political stories; in fact most native Ottawans regard federal politics like a nasty personal hygiene issue that hangs around the town like .... well, you get the general idea.
Nonetheless we're not too blasé to rejoice when a local daughter or .... erm, son (yeah, yeah, yeah, Dan Akroyd, Paul Anka, Rich Little - oh what a scintillating firmament) makes the headlines.
So, Sandra Oh - you go grrrrl!
From the modestly budgeted NFB film short featured in Five Feminists, to a number of indie Canadian features, to Sideways, to that prime-time medical soap opera that under-uses your talents, you are more than a star - you're the sun and the moon wrapped up in one powerhouse performer.
