85

I needed something comforting this morning after waking up with the news of Jack Layton’s death, and nice strong Assam with a hefty dose of cream was it. After watching some great but sad tributes to him, this and reading his last letter (http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2011/08/22/pol-layton-last-letter.html) helped perk me up as much as possible. So very heartbreaking, though. It’s rare for there to be a political leader, especially a Canadian leader, that the people can so unanimously look up to. At least I think we can be confident that he’s left quite the legacy of hope and change.

I had that “need a comfort tea” moment too after I heard. I cried into my Nepal Black from DT while reading his letter. Such a huge loss.

Good thing we have our comfort blacks at times like this.

same here. except I had no time for tea! I did that when I got to work… but I still felt so very sad. Reading the paper this morning drove it home even further. RIP Jack
