Six In The Morning: Dapper Snakes

6-in-the-morning1 WHY WERE WE SPYING ON BRAZIL’S MINING AND ENERGY MINISTRY? This story doesn’t seem to be going away. Is Brazil a security issue here for Canadians? Because I’m sure our government wouldn’t put Canada’s intelligence community to work digging up useful information for Canadian mining companies.

2 IT’S A LITTLE  RICH FOR THE PARTY THAT’S ALWAYS FIGHTING WITH ELECTIONS CANADA TO CRITICIZE ANOTHER COUNTRY’S ELECTIONS The slowly sinking Maldives have a beef with Canada’s John Baird.

3 NOBEL PRIZE IN PHYSICS: BETTER LATE THAN NEVER Two scientists who in the 1960s deduced the existence of the recently confirmed-to-exist Higgs Bosun particle just won the Nobel prize in physics.

4  BUSSING BUSING IT Regina city councillor Shawn Fraser is educating himself on our city’s transit system by using it. Radical!

5  IDLING IN THE MALL Idle No More danced up a storm at the Cornwall Centre yesterday.

6 BUT IT’S NOT APARTHEID The Palestinian economy  loses almost three and a half billion dollars annually from Israeli restrictions in the West Bank, say the commie socialists at the World Bank.

TELL ME THIS ISN’T CUTE And no, this is not cruel to the adorbs animal. H/T to Carle Steel and Jezebel.

  1. 5) Idle No More should audition on American Idol.
    6) Makes perfect sense.

    Snake with a hat…at least not a snake in a hat.

  2. Ooooh, Stephen: “bussing” means kissing; “busing”, even though it contravenes the usual English practice of long-vowel pronunciation before a single consonant, is correct.

    When I was on the Regina Board of Education, I took the bus almost daily, mostly on Board business. Though entitled to apply for a free bus pass, I didn’t, because not all my trips were on business. I even said to the transit folks, “Hey, if you want to use me for advertising, feel free”. They didn’t, preferring to hype a football player or two who might have seen a bus, maybe even ridden on one for a couple of blocks, but who could hardly qualify as regular users. So, good on ya, Shawn Fraser, and don’t forget to take every route at least once.

  3. But with one “R” isn’t it “byoosing”? Plus, isn’t the plural of bus “busses”? Time to consult the dictionary…

  4. Huh, story checks out. This is no mere typo. Barb has busted me on genuine ignorance. Well done.

  5. Re: “byoosing”: of course you already covered that with your “single consonant long vowel pronunciation” spiel. Duh me.

  6. SW: If either you or a magician buddy can pull out a 20 ft + long unsedated Python out of a magician hat without issue, then consider me awed and amazed.
