- Has Her Ship Come In?
Sat, 16 Feb 2013
Well, that didn't take long. No sooner had the crippled cruise ship Carnival Triumph, snuggled up to the docks in Mobile, Alabama, than at least one legal beagle was fielding a call from a disgruntled passenger. Thanks to a fire in its engine room, the C.T. had been bobbing around, powerless, in the Gulf of [...] more...
- So Long, Farewell...And Don't Let That Screen Door...!
Sat, 26 Jan 2013
That woodland philosopher, Thumper, once advised his best bud Bambi, that when speaking of others, "If you can't say somethin' nice…don't say nothin' at all." Well, with that in mind, and with a little help, I’ll refrain from commenting on Dalton McGuinty’s departure….. Thanks, Carol. Listen to The Motts (Paul and Carol) weekdays... 11 [...] more...
- Cease And Desist Dumping On "Dastardly" DJ's!
Sat, 08 Dec 2012
To those calling for the heads, of two young Aussie DJ's, who they believe are responsible for the death of a London hospital worker… time to take a pill, people! When Mc and Mel, of Sydney's 2dayFM, placed a crank call to London's King Edward VII Hospital, there's no way on earth they could have [...] more...
- Ford Fumbles! Again!
Mon, 03 Dec 2012
To quote that spinach loving, pipe smoking, squinty-eyed seafarer with the muscular forearms…"That's all I can stands, I can't stands no more!" A Judge's boot to Rob Ford's behind is NOT an attack on democracy, as some are screeching… in fact it's just the opposite, it's democracy in action! In his Honor's opinion, Toronto's good [...] more...
- Kid Khadr's Future...A View From The 8-Ball!
Mon, 01 Oct 2012
So, what does the future hold for convicted Al Qaeda terrorist Omar Khadr, now repatriated, snuggled away in his Millhaven cell? Will he soon walk amongst us, embracing our values, lugging a fat wallet, compliments of the taxpayer? Is this what's in store for our native son, who was led astray by a fanatical family, [...] more...
- The Crucifixion of Krista!
Mon, 03 Sep 2012
There's no argument. In any sexual assault, there's only one party at fault… the perpetrator. The victim is innocent, blameless, even if she's all dolled up like Hickory Holler's tramp. To suggest she was "asking for it" based on her dress, is not only unjust and hurtful, it's ridiculous. I've yet to meet the woman [...] more...
- 'ang In, 'arry!
Sun, 26 Aug 2012
Who, beyond the half-century mark can honestly say, they never had their own, "shooting strip pool in a Vegas hotel suite", moment? Who, thinking back, doesn't thank their lucky stars, that the advent of the cell phone was decades off… as far-fetched an idea as the Dick Tracy radio watch? Admit it, or not, the [...] more...
- Pussy Riot Punished For Putin Put Down!
Sun, 19 Aug 2012
It wouldn't be surprising if those three members of the Russian, punk rock group, Pussy Riot, were soon pardoned… or at the very least cut a great deal of slack. The heat is on, and President Vladimir Putin and the questionably righteous, Russian Orthodox Church, are taking a thumping on the world stage. Slapped with [...] more...
- Buy A Ticket To Success?
Tue, 14 Aug 2012
Once again we applaud their efforts, and express pride in how they performed. And, once again we wonder why they didn't do better… being oh, so careful, not to minimize their achievements. They, after all, are the ones who step up, our flag-bearing Olympians, devoted to bringing glory to the Great White North. Our goal [...] more...
- Tarnished Rings?
Sun, 29 Jul 2012
As I watched the opening ceremony of the 30th Olympiad, the parade of nations, I couldn't help but wonder how some countries scored an invitation… countries whose devotion to fair play and sportsmanship, might fall a tad short of the Olympic ideal. At the '48 games in London, Germany and Japan were 'persona non grata', [...] more... |
- Watching the Nightmare Unfold in Newtown
Mon, 17 Dec 2012
Just now we are getting to know the people behind the numbers. Twenty-six dead, but who are they? The stories of immense courage are coming out, teachers running toward the sound of gunshots, some shielding children with their bodies. I don't know if anything can make this worse, but that this happened at a time of year that fills that age of innocence with such excitement and wonder just adds another level of heartbreak. more...
- Stop Treating Two Prank-Calling DJs Like Killers
Mon, 10 Dec 2012
To those calling for the heads of two young Aussie DJs, who they believe are responsible for the death of a London hospital worker... time to take a pill, people! When MC and Mel, of Sydney's 2Day FM, placed a crank call to London's King Edward VII Hospital, there's no way on earth they could have foreseen, that it might play a part in a tragic event like this. What are these two actually guilty of? more...
- The Real Victims of Teachers vs. Dalton McGuinty? The Students
Tue, 25 Sep 2012
The kids are just back to school and already much of what they enjoy in extra-curricular activities is being whittled away. Once again they are pawns to be used in a political game. What do you remember from your school days? I'd venture to say that many of the memories come not from what happened in class but from those extra-curricular activities, the life lessons learned and the great teachers who supported you in that quest. more...
- Rob Ford Fumbles in Match With the Star!
Tue, 6 Dec 2011
Star lovers, and their numbers are many, have every right to expect that news out of Toronto City Hall, that may well affect their lives, will be shared with their favourite paper. After all, they too are the mayor's constituents. more...
- Did the French Magazine Get What it Deserved?
Mon, 7 Nov 2011
In a free society, few will argue that Charlie, or anyone else for that matter, doesn't have the right to poke fun and freedom of expression should be defended. But having the RIGHT to do something doesn't always make it right. And it's certainly no shield against retaliation. Right, Charlie? more...
- Inquiry Into Gaddafi's Death a Waste of Time
Tue, 25 Oct 2011
For the man devoid of an ounce of compassion, an ounce of lead was a fitting end. Moammar Gaddafi, 'The Desert Lion,' is... more...
- Dopey War on Drugs
Fri, 14 Oct 2011
I don't buy for one second that the big minds on the House Judiciary Committee actually believe this bit of nonsense will help turn the war on drugs, an effort that was doomed to failure from the get-go. People want what people want, and no number of laws, no matter how strictly enforced, will stop them from getting it. more...
- Mr. Obama, Put Up That Wall!
Mon, 3 Oct 2011
What the Yanks do on their side of the border is their business. For all I care, they can build a wall coast to coast as long as their taxpayers are footin' the bill... not one penny from OUR coffers. more...
- So Long Summer!
Sat, 17 Sep 2011
I don't know about you, but it seems that the last time I checked my watch it was half-past May, and I was... more...
- Last Word on Jack Layton
Mon, 29 Aug 2011
A lot has been said about the kind of grief Canadians have been showing for Jack Layton. Is it contrived? Why such public spectacles? Is it a true outpouring of emotion? For some it seemed clear they wanted their 15 minutes of fame and would grieve publicly and put on a performance for the cameras. more...
- British PM Punishes Punks
Tue, 23 Aug 2011
Following the riots that tore through the heart of Her Majesty's realm, Cameron came out swingin'. He told the world that England wouldn't tolerate this kind of behaviour. Now, if we could only get you this side of the pond to deal with the Vancouver riot, I'm sure things would move along a little quicker. more...
- Once a Separatist, Always a Separatist?
Wed, 10 Aug 2011
Minister of Transport Denis Lebel's Bloc QuĂ©bĂ©cois story differs from that of Nycole Turmel's. He walked away from the separatist gang more than a decade ago, not months ago. And, of course, the biggest difference between them is that he's not the leader of the party. more...
- Why Rob Ford's Flip Off Is a Big Political Fumble
Fri, 29 Jul 2011
While the mayor fessed up to talking on a cell phone while driving, he claimed giving "the bird" to a taxpayer was a "misunderstanding." So, he did it, but didn't mean it? The offended taxpayer wasn't his target, just collateral damage? Sorry Mr. Mayor, what we have here is a failure to communicate more...
- Somalia's Image Deficit: Helping or Hurting Aid?
Mon, 25 Jul 2011
Once again the pictures of little children starving in Somalia break your heart. But this time there are other pictures that come to mind too: warlords, pirates, radical Islamists... Many will remember when the world was there to help and just how badly it turned out. more...
- The Naughty Nudist
Tue, 12 Jul 2011
While some feel there is a serious issue of freedom of expression at play in Brian Coldin's nudity case, there is a time and place to express yourself. I'm no prude, but the sight of some dude with his 'pendulum' a-sway for all to behold, is something I can live without! more... |
Do believe T.O. Mayor Rob Ford was smokin' crack, as it "appears" he is in a video?
