Sick In The Morning: Anyone Else Have The Plague?

6-in-the-morning1 THE U.S. NEARLY NUKED NORTH CAROLINA Yikes. Maybe us humans shouldn’t have stockpiles of these insanely dangerous weapons?

2 THE NEW YORK TIMES ON STEPHEN  HARPER’S WAR ON SCIENCE Read it here.

3 SHOPPING MALL MASSACRE: 62 DEAD AND COUNTING Kenyan security forces have regained control of a shopping mall that was the scene of a massacre perpetrated by horrible Islamist douchebags. Some of the horrible douchebags are apparently still be holed up in the mall, so this isn’t over yet.

4 ANDREA MERKEL LOOKS FOR DANCE PARTNERS Germany’s conservative Christian Democrat party had a pretty good election result but to form government it will need to form a coalition with another party. Coalitions: other countries have ’em.

5 ONLY ASSHOLES BURN BOOKS Some ignorant creep or creeps torched a free neighbourhood micro library because that’s what dummies do.

6 RIGHT ON, POPE FRANCIS… OH WAIT The pope correctly says that his church is too obsessed with abortion and gay marriage. Twenty-four hours later, he inanely blasts abortion as “throw-away culture”. Well, baby steps, I guess.

BONUS NEWS: Here’s the latest climate change news and it’s not good; Calgary’s flood was the most expensive natural disaster in Canadian history; Quebec has launched a commission into police violence and the spring 2012 student protests; Charges have been laid in a Saskatchewan hazing incident; the next Star Wars movie apparently wants a Wookiee; former child soldier and Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadir wants to be moved to a provincial prison;   lotta racists rallied for racism in Quebec; Blackberry is in big, big trouble; a Saskatooner doesn’t like strip clubs; and I’m sick and I don’t like it. I blame Autmun.

  1. (1) On the other hand, it’s North Carolina…
    (6) If you and a bunch of other media types had read his first statements with anything like care, you’d have noted that his message was that these issues have unfortunately crowded out a lot of others equally as important. No teachings were changed. As to “throw-away culture”, it’s hard to argue with that when you see its symptoms all around. Now: have you equal time for his statements on money and business?

    There’s a 24-hour bug going around, with fever, lassitude, aches, etc.

  2. Am I the only one who caught ‘Andrea’ instead of ‘Angela’ Merkel? Steve, does this count towards the Typo Wiener? :D

  3. (1) Maybe they did! The fallout could explain the Reilly family. (Sorry about that, a Big Brother reference with a Regina connection is hard for me to pass up, especially when it’s mean.)
