The State of the World

Honestly, why didn't Bradshaw just wear a giant sign that said, "Remember me? I'm important dammit!" instead of subjecting me to that bloated 37-minute promo? And if I know creative, they'll book him to win at the Rumble because they think the feud is money.

And the swanton off the lighting rig was pretty cool, but I've seen it before.

  • Everyone congratulate Downtown Windsor BIA Prez Larry Horwitz who finally got his beloved mandatory 3 a.m. shutdown for all bars in the city in a narrow 6-4 vote last night. Even though Police Chief Glenn Stannard and Mayor Eddie both thought it was a rather silly idea.

    Though Larry's right. There will be more violence. Now it'll just happen at three a.m. after everyone slams down those last rounds of shots at last call.

  • Trouble in Shangri-La?: New US energy legislation suggests unconventional energy sources can only be endorsed if they produce the same level of greenhouse gas as conventional petroleum. This could be major suck for the Alberta oil sands, as it's one of the dirtiest energy sources since it takes so much power to get the oil out of the sand.

    Canadian petroleum producers play down the legislation, arguing transporting oil from the Middle East is just as damaging to the environment, if not more so.

  • If you didn't know, by the way, it's a total nerdgasm day as Steve Jobs is preparing to make his MacWorld keynote later this afternoon. Further details tonight.

  • Japanese whalers to Greenpeace: We ain't playing with you.

  • German researchers claim to have proof the Koran was not written by the prophet Mohammad. That should go over well.

  • Celebrating seven years of the hive mind.
