The State of the World Does a Mean Soulja Boy

But his Superman needs a little work. But his Supersoaker and Robocop? Spot on, son!
  • Issue of the day? Aside from trucks on Dougall is the mecca of violence known as the sidewalk outside the Box Office nightclub on Pellissier. And kids, Alan Halberstadt and Ron Jones are mad as hell and aren't going to take it anymore, putting the word out that they'll be putting a motion to council to have the city's after hours "entertainment lounges" shut down by 3.00 a.m. Clearly, this is something Gord can get behind.

    I'm not gonna go after the message of the column, I agree with it actually. There's more blood on Pellissier than anywhere else in the city, so clearly something needs to be done. But Gord's never found a sensationalist quote he didn't love, so councilor Jones's quip about "these little 50 Cent wannabes," is too good to pass up, followed by an odd, two line headshake at the state of youth [read: black] culture. I won't get all Michael Eric Dyson here, but suffice to say: the issue's a little bigger than that.

    By refusing to acknowledge that, all shutting down some clubs could do is make these people operate in the daytime.
