Rosie’s Top Six

1 THE LEADER POST GROWS A PAIR Yesterday, I wondered why the Leader-Post would leave their best reporter – legislative correspondent Murray Mandryk out to dry on his story about the federal government’s bungling of the proposed BHP Billiton purchase of PCS by running Tony Clement’s bafflegab of bulltweet on the front page. Guess I was wrong: the LP uncharacteristically refused to back down in front of Clement’s bluster on today’s editorial page. (Leader-Post)

2 BECAUSE IF WE HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, INFORMATION AND THOUGHT, THE TERRORISTS WIN The United States Air Force has blocked its computers from accessing the New York Times and The Guardian over the Wikileaks information. (Reuters)

3 YOU MEAN THE RIDERS AREN’T JUST GOING TO HAND THE JOB TO RITCHIE HALL? COULD HAVE FOOLED ME … If you can’t beat them, join them. (Rod Pedersen)

4 J-E-T-S SPELLS JUST END THE SEASON Remember that New York Jets coach who tripped a Dolphins player on the field during Sunday’s game? He apologized, was fined $25K and suspended for the last three games of the season … but there are now allegations of a cover-up. (ESPN)

5 ARE WE READY TO HAVE THIS DEBATE? About an Anti-Harper coalition? I am. But I was ready for that debate two years ago. (Far and Wide)

6 HOPE YOU GOT ENOUGH TO EAT, LORD MONCKTON Rising tides and flooding lands means 39 per cent of Linconshire (the primary agricultural area of England) is in danger from flooding from seas and rivers. Someone tell these Limeys that climate change is a crock and the problem will go away. It worked so well in Stephen Harper’s Canada … (The Guardian)

  1. The NFL has been covered a little too alarmingly this season. Brett Favre’s penis!! Brett Favre’s shoulder!! Dallas Cowboys sucking it, oh-no!! Dog-fighting sleazebag Michael Vick reborn!! Metrodome roofal tear!! Colts mediocre, oh-no!!

    Reading NFL headlines this year, you’d think the entire civilization was collapsing.
