The University of Calgary men's volleyball Dinosaurs have chosen a difficult way to get themselves in game shape this year. Play until the other team quits.

For the second week in a row, the Dinos played a match which took over three hours to complete. The Big Red Machine rolled into Vancouver to play the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds over the weekend and emerged with their number one ranking intact, with two five-set victories over the T-Birds.

  Do free markets make free people?PDF files may take a moment to load

Ten years ago in his inaugural address then us President George Bush laid the ground work to justify our newly crowned economic hypothesis.

"Freer markets undoubtedly lead to freer people."

While it's not a direct translation from Milton Friedman it's the sound-bit summation of the libertarian's philosophy. It is also very incorrect. The link between capitalism and democracy which we've all accepted for years has yet to rear it's head in dictatorships of China, Singapore, Indonesia, et cetera.
