Bird flu found in Canada.
It is really interesting to see the spin the TV media have put on this story. They are claiming that it has just shown up, rather than it was discovered this summer (of course, how else would it fit into their pandemic paranoia theme?) I think they meant to cut out the clip where the official indicated that 'bird flu in birds is not news'. Gee do you think the increased testing might have something to do with finding increased cases? They continue to publish reports indicating there is no pandemic, and no reason to panic, yet there have been no less than 3 stories on it in the past news hour.

The Gomery report is being released tomorrow. I'm seriously thinking of staying home from work just to get the scoop. This could be the end of the Martin's minority government. Maybe it's better if I just go to work and not even check the news, I don't even want to consider a fall election.

Apparently, if you want the truth about a political appointee, all you have to do is ask their mother. When Judge Alito's mother was asked about his stance on abortion, she replied, "Of course he's against abortion."

Halloween - the new Valentines Day?
Canadians are spending 1.1 billion dollars on Halloween this year. That compares to 3.3 billion in the US. Canadian population ~30 million, US pop. ~296 million. Why are we spending 3x as much per capita?
