Brain Drain Gain

Washington's gain will be every Albertan gain. Or is it every Calgary bar owner’s loss? I can't keep them straight.

Soon to be former Alberta Premier Ralph Klein has accepted a post as a guest lecturer at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C. Klein said he will talk about practical politics — street politics as he knows it for a cool $5,000 US a month for the three-month term in the fall of 2007.

That will mean plenty of happy hours around Dupont Circle. Those in Washington should look for Ralph. He will be the guy with the big red nose throwing money at the homeless.
