The State of the World

Hey Windsor, Nice Rack!
It's the biggest thing to hit Daily News possible ever, it's UWindsor's new brand! Your man has two thoughts.
  1. Why the pea-soup green?
  2. It looks like boobs. I'm infantile, I know. But it looks like boobs to me.
The various releases tell me the website will be getting a visual overhaul, which you can see the start of on the home page. I hope it moves along quick, because that two-table layout they've had for years is really starting to look stank.

Many reasons to stop and think this week
It's a happy week all over as not only do we mark the anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks [six years ago, can you believe it?] but the one year anniversary of the Dawson College shootings in Montreal.

Odd to think there are young people now who became globally aware in a world where the fallout of 9/11 has always been there.

One more nutjob silenced
Speaking of 9/11, one of the many conspiracies that has floated in the years since is that the towers fell in much too controlled a fashion, as if someone had planned it. Engineers in Britain have released a study refuting that idea.

They say the towers suffered from progressive collapse, where each floor went one at a time, pancaking down on each other, which would explain the manner in which they fell.

Briefly
Hear me, Ben and Jerry. I will not rest until I find this man.

Purse snatcher tackled and apprehended by onlookers, who discover purse snatcher to be a cop. Awkward.

Single tear: world's smartest parrot dies.

Full circle to my earlier comment: Utah schools not observing 9/11, so as not to upset children who don't remember it.
