The State of the World

The dry season in Windsor
As someone who nearly broke his neck numerous times on the Mic Mac Park waterslides [shoulderblades and ankles are the key to speed, man], it was with no small amount of sadness that I read that they've been closed this season.

The slides are owned by a private company, which felt its energies would be better spent on other ventures this year.

Everyone from the slides' owners to city officials are optimistic that they'll be back next year, but for now it's another locked gate and 'No Trespassing' sign.

Don't you get sick of this?

The Star also reports that Essex County Council is going to look at the benefits and costs of regional public transit to and from Windsor.

Riiight.

The UWSA webiste has still not been updated. I think I last went there in.....May, perhaps?

Utah mine catastrof*ck continues
I really hadn't seen anything on the whole Utah mining disaster since last week, when rescue workers were confident they had located the trapped miners.

Eleven days later, and not only have the six miners not been found, but three rescue workers died in another cave-in.

Utah governor Jon Huntsman said he doesn't want underground tunneling to continue, but that decision rests with the federal mining authority.

Briefly
When you make sweet love by the fire, keep the extinguisher handy.

Canadians: rapidly losing their moral high ground over Americans.

Robbing a bank during your afternoon job hunt can lead to embarrassing arrests.

It's one thing to toss your wife over an apartment balcony. It's another to give her a kiss goodbye before you do it. Creepy!
