Six In The Morning: Holiday Monday Edition

6-in-the-morning1. SOMETHING ABOUT HIS EYES?  A new poll shows that people just don’t trust Stephen Harper.

2. WELL THAT’S ONE WAY TO DO IT  Scientists in Brazil are attempting to clone endangered species of animals. Or they could just try saving their remaining habitats, but, you know, whatever works. Otherwise we probably should rent them apartments and get them drivers licenses too.

3. HOMELESS IN SPAIN  The homeless population is skyrocketing in Spain after mass evictions leave many renters out in the cold.

4. CUBA’S POST-SANDY CLEAN-UP  It isn’t getting as much press as you-know-where.

  1. I actually don’t get that. I trust Stephen Harper to do exactly what he do. It’s not as if he campaigns on compassion or tri-partisanship. There’s a whole lot not to like, but what’s not to trust?

  2. Holiday monday? When 11am/11/11/012 was on sunday..

    Lazy system.. not enough time off at xmas week(s)??

    Back in the day,we,( Barb included ), took 2mins off 11am -11:02am, then back to the lesson at hand, if 11/11 was on a school day.

    Does the current school system ,teach the fact of “us” vs.”them” soldiers, stopping battle to sing xmas songs ?

    Hitler even respected the Vimy Ridge Memorial & he didn’t destroy it.

    My dad recieved a Medal for getting hit by a piece schrapnel in his torso.
    In Europe.

    He was 19-20 years old.

    WAR is HELL.

  3. Actually, Ron, we had the morning for Remembrance Day ceremonies, before going back to the books.

    As a school board member, I attended numerous school and armoury ceremonies. My most memorable was a high-school assembly where the principal told a gym full of kids about his father’s experiences as a POW of the Japanese. When he said that his dad weighed 160 lbs. before capture, and at his liberation was down to 60 lbs., that entire gym full of kids gasped, as one. I think they got it.

    On the other hand, if I never hear “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes ever again, it’ll be too soon.
