Your official photo of the new Harper cabinet indeed suggests how large government has become. The picture is also redolent of a private-school graduation photo, say about 1955. The men and women have arranged their legs and arms in keeping with oh-so-proper upbringing.
But we should find a better word than "cabinet" to describe what seems numerically to be something approaching a CFL or NHL team.
