And this in the Summer of Steve, which was to be the dawn of a warmer, funnier leader. Rather than a goodwill tour, Harper’s summer plans are sounding more and more like a threat, describing a sort of roving BBQ bogeyman appearing unbidden at community fêtes, tossing the pigskin for a bit in his shirt and tie, and then telling off two-thirds of the guests. And you thought the mosquitos were a nuisance.
