And somewhere between cat litter and Video on Trial, there was the State of the World

Former hostage speaking this weekend
For a different perspective on the war in Iraq, you could do worse than stopping by James Loney's public lecture this Sunday at 3.00 p.m. at Assumption Chapel.

Loney, a UWindsor alumnus, was working with the Christian Peacemakers when he was abducted and held hostage for four months.

Now, as a warning, there'll be a fair bit of Jesus included in the whole affair, but if you'd like to hear about things from someone who was there instead of a pundit, I imagine this would do the job.

A'burg body identified
Police have identified a body found in Amherstburg last week as 42-year-old Windsor man Stephen Joseph Deneau. Police are treating the death as suspicious, and anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 519.248.8477.

Thank you voters, have a holiday
As mentioned last night, Dalton's Liberals utterly demolished the competition, proving Ontario voters prefer lying to giving money to faith based schools.

For his part, McGuinty celebrated by announcing the creation of a new statutory holiday for the third week of February, Family Day. Don't it just warm your cockles, Windsor?

On the other side of town, John Tory's trying to figure out the most graceful way to exit the Conservative Party, having dragged down Conservative support in the popular vote and losing his own seat to the Liberal candidate. The Globe says Tory will be meeting with party members to discuss his future. I'd say it involves a hook.

Briefly
In case you forgot, the chickenlegged devil known as Ann Coulter? Still crazy.

Remember the Klingon v. Furry bowling showdown from a couple weeks ago? Here you go.

Even if you're a judge, and even if the lawyer has has a nice butt, that does not make it okay to use your outside voice to point it out.
