The State of the World: Caj Fri

--On campus, you should probably know that Humanities Week kicks off next week. You could just read about all the events in The Lance after they happen, but why not actually go there yourself for once.

--Locally, the talented Mr. Schnurr continues writing the saga of his and his group's attempts to get some truth out of the Windsor Utilities Commission. The latest episodes involve dealings with WUC Commissioner Ken Lewenza Jr. Nice to see that even when you run a respectable blog you still get anonymous a-holes causing a ruckus. And I do find it interesting that Ken's stated he's not interested in dealing with people with personal agendas. Last I checked, those were the only agendas most politicians had. Call me jaded.

--After the initial surprise that Myanmnar's military junta would allow organized protests, thing have gotten back to normal with beatings and tear gassings.

--Jones Soda officially goes too far. The 'Christmas Dinner' soda pack with the turkey and brussel sprout flavoured beverages was one thing. Dirt and sweat flavoured drinks? Are you completely catering to the fraternity hazing market?

--Cops carrying submachine guns on city streets. Well that's just a wonderful idea.

--Why bother banning peanuts when it's so much easier to ban the allergic children?

--What would you do with half a million dollars? Pay morgage? Yep. Travel with the wife? Yep. Become Storm Trooper? Uhh...
