Feeling the Itis

























Hoping your turkey enjoyment was everything you wanted it to be, Windsor.

I would love you to give you a proper state of the world, but it seems most of said state is concerned with the ongoing economic armageddon, of which I have only a limited understanding of [though apparently Europe figured out how to fix it]. Still, the bulk of what I'm hearing is this: it was a long time in the making, and it will be a long time getting out of it. So tighten your belts, graduates, and enjoy spending the next 15 years of your lives getting out of debt.

Other, than that, it's Election Day!

See the exclamation point? That was me trying to work up enthusiasm for Canadian politics. That said, the aforementioned economic crisis has been a game changer for this election, forcing the party leaders to alter their plans considerably. Some predict that if Harper gets the big chair again, his cabinet will be significantly shuffled again. If the Liberals don't hold onto as many seats as they had when the campaign started, his spot as party Leader could be threatened. So it wouldn't be all bad if Harper gets reelected. Polls suggest we'll get the same Parliamentary makeup we had when this thing started, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get off your ass in the democratic process.

I'll be doing it to renew my complainer's rights, which for a sassbag like me is of paramount importance.

Elsewhere:
Down south Bush signs a law toughening penalties for movie and music piracy at a federal level. Sure to reverberate up here in the coming months.

A St. Louis radio station encourages arson by shifting to 24/7 Christmas music. Now. In October. Before Halloween.

Peeing on yourself is always a good way to distract the police officer who has pulled you over.
