Four In The Afternoon: Potash, Obama, Child Soldiers, Stuff

1 POTASH! Brad Wall sez hands off furriners! Murray Mandryk has a good article on the situation! The federal Tories might just leave it all to the free market! Lots of people murmur that Potash Corp should never have been effin’ privatized in the first place. They’re right.

2 PRESS FREEDOM SAYS YAY! Journalists can legally keep their anonymous sources secret as long as doing so can be demonstrated as in the public interest. There was some resistance to this.

3 FORMER CHILD SOLDIER IMPRISONED IN U.S. CONCENTRATION CAMP MIGHT BE COMING BACK TO CANADA, MAYBE There are rumours.

4 U.S. PRESIDENT STICKS UP FOR BULLIED GAY TEENS Good!
