The State of the World

Around town
Call me sentimental, Windsor but anyone who does this to an animal deserves to have their ass removed.

Staying local for a moment, it appears that a provincial investment will turn the long abandoned Grace Hospital site to a long term care facility. LV Concorde, the site's owners, aren't saying how much the investment is, but it's part of a $32.1 million deal to provide 448 more long-term care beds in Windsor.

So it looks like all you punks who have been breaking in and ripping off typewriters the last few years will have to find somewhere else to loot. Shouldn't be too hard.

Someone tell them I don't care
Why is the national media continuing to shove this Mulroney/Trudeau nonsense down my throat?
One, it was never any secret what Mulroney thought about Trudeau, nor was it any secret he thought he got the shaft over Meech Lake. Two, Trudeau's been dead for seven years. How is it a long standing feud when one of the participants is gone and buried? Three, Mulroney has a book to push. Do you think we can't spot a publicity grab when we see it? Is Canada so starved for political scandal that a former PM sniping at his deceased predecessor catches ink on every national page?

Shock and horror!
I'll admit it. I've seen High School Musical. It was on one Sunday afternoon and I left it on as I packed CDs for the move. I thought it was good and harmless, even if I couldn't understand the fanatical devotion it incites amongst the tween crowd.

Then this dropped. Oops. Is there anything Disney hates more than having its squeakiness tarnished? Not that I can think of. At any rate, this "scandal" may have cost her the HSM gig from here on out, but that's just speculation. Who knows, maybe that was all part of the plan? Young actress fearful of being pigeonholed by Disney career plants a little self sabotage to get out of it? Stranger things have happened.

Briefly
Bush tells Australian PM the US is "kicking ass" in Iraq. He actually said that.

Didn't they already deal with this last year?: Potter 'vibrating broomstick' toy big hit with the ladies, promptly recalled.

First the Syrians and the Israelis, now the British and the Russians. Somebody needs to settle down around here.

If there's anything funnier [in a sad way] than a drunken priest article, I don't know what it is.
