Super Condensed

Daddy's gotta take a life day today, Windsor, as not only do I have an orientation for my new retail job this afternoon at 3.00 [which means at least an hour on the train there and back] but Mama Trail is coming to visit this weekend. It's the first time she's been to visit our home anywhere, so you know I'll be cleaning my arse off.

Oh, and she gets in tomorrow afternoon. So let's make this quick.

--Wednesday means mothership update, and you can get the scoop on the provincial election, the UWSA by-election, and former Governor General Adrienne Clarkson's speech on campus tomorrow night. I had no idea she was coming. Nobody tells me nothing. And still, no opinion section. Somebody piss off the law rep.

--The Throne Speech was last night, which kicks off the current year of Parliament. The speech still has to be accepted by the opposition, or Parliament falls and we go to the polls again. The Bloc and the NDP have both stated their intent to vote against it. That leaves the Liberals with the deciding decision. Both Liberal leader Stephane Dion and Deputy Michael Ignatieff expressed dissatisfaction with the speech, but hinted that they won't vote against it, to save Canadians another election. Dion will make his announcement at 3.15 today.

--The Star has what appears to be Monica Wolfson's notes reporting UWindsor has $108 million in debt, or $7,522 per student, which places it in the lowest ratios of the thirteen schools in the study. I don't know what study it is, as its never mentioned before or after the lede paragraph, but it may be related to this story listed right above it. Honestly, the Star website is awful for this sort of thing. Posting some vague, two paragraph piece with no detail, only to post a more fleshed out version two hours later.

--And in stupid, Florida stripper enthusiasts dissatisfied with peeler sent to private party, express said dissatisfaction by shooting her manager.

More later. Now? Dishes.
