    Let them have their damn donuts!

    http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/World/2007/08/22/4438030-ap.html We're all used to the increasingly restrictive nature of modern life.

    Time to ditch Stats Canada

    http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2007/07/18/crime-stats.html Interesting stuff! Then CTV has on an explosive report last night. Stats Canada refuses to include drug offences and drug crime in its compilation for these critical numbers. You'd have to live in a chipmunk hole not to know the way...

    Vitamin D Bombshell

    Get a copy of today's Globe. I can't link it. The scientific community has been asleep at the switch for years. A groundbreaking study from south of the border is to be released in June that states without reservation the chief cause of cancer in northern climes is lack of Vitamin D. Warned...

    What's the white rap connection?

    http://www.americanpopularculture.com/archive/music/rap_white_men.htm Now that Imus is gone, the next round has started. Many news shows and journals the last few days have started the war on rap. But the problem with rap certainly isn't one limited to the black community. White kids have...

    http://www.boston.com/news/world/asia/articles/2007/04/17/china_hoarding_h5n1_samples_for_over_a_year_who/ Makes you wonder. Why would the Chinese be reluctant to share such important data? Is there anything sinister here or is that merely the conspiracist bug whispering in my ear?

    Hijab Day...good idea or bad?

    http://www.thestar.com/article/202275 One has to wonder if professors initiating such activity are opening a can of worms or simply doing their job. But, similarly, I also wonder what would be the effect on the Jewish community if she suggested Skull Cap Day. Would said community embrace it or...

    Blair blames blacks...is he right?

    http://www.thestar.com/News/article/202661 This could have come from Toronto. Fighting off the PC has become a major battle for the city's police and politicians as they deal with the issue of black crime in the city. Looks like blacks world-wide are not seen as partners in the development of...

    The China Question

    http://www.thestar.com/article/172989 Although continuing problems in the Mid-East dominate network and newspaper coverage I can't help but think the real story is China.

    Another oil crisis on the horizon?

    http://www.thestar.com/Business/article/170894 Great article by the Star's David Olive! It does make sense given the reference to Iran made by Bush this week in his speech bumping US troop levels in Iraq. And a carrier has to have a mission; this could be it.

    Fair Play Movement and the Regulation Juggernaut

    I can't seem to link the local paper here in the Kawarthas but let this suffice: teapots are trembling about Peterborough, Ontario.

    The Age of Crazy Weather

    Three major power outages in little more than three weeks in Ontario's Kawarthas. It's getting a little unnerving. Generator sales are brisk. Last night a 'gust line' ripped through the area and in some of the fiercest winds I've ever experienced millions in damage were exacted in less than half...

    Are these the early days of WWIII?

    Watching coverage today of the renewed crisis in the Mid-East I can only think as many have said: we're possibly looking at the beginning of the big one. WWWIII. Where will all this be in September?
