(CBC, Moore, Globe)

"The Bush Administration has decided that it will stand by its approval for a book claiming the Grand Canyon was created by Noah’s flood rather than by geologic forces, according to internal documents released today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER)." Sigh.

Looking to register voters in a swing state? Do it the sketchy way!

"Republican Supreme Court candidate Tom Parker passed out Confederate battle flags at the funeral of a Confederate veteran's widow in June and spoke at a birthday party in July for the founder of the Ku Klux Klan, Parker confirmed Friday." Ugh! Are people nuts? Is this what the 'heartland' is all about? Double sigh.

At least we still find time to feed our respective monkeys

Oh Walmart, you pioneer of artistic understanding!

You know, if you wanted to make a big light because most of Saskatoon suffers from SAD, you could've just said so. You didn't need to have some elaborate scientific cover. ;)

The story itself is worth reading, but the sentence "...You never want to question a judge's ruling..." from anyone, let alone a Democratic Senator better be just for public appeal versus any sort of reasoning(!).

Cuddly and Ready to Please?
"Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhao-xing... told The Globe and Mail that the planned $7-billion takeover of Noranda by a consortium of Chinese state-controlled companies is just a small part of a strategy to invest heavily in this country's resource sector."

Prime Minister Paul Martin welcomed a Chinese proposal to purchase mining giant Noranda Inc, he did mention some reservations about human rights records. He said they'd think about it and discuss it, so I guess that's resolved.

I guess America is a model for the world. (I wonder if they will cause the country to sink a couple inches in another 10 years?)

The 21st century may be China's because of population size and rapidly developing technology and business sectors. General Info. (The improper English at the top amuses me)

Looks like the real thing can be beaten. It is interesting to note that more countries have Coke than belong to the UN.

Overconsumption threatens ecological balance, WWF warns. The actual content of the story is important, but I will admit one of the main reasons I posted this one is because I still associate the "WWF" with wrestling, despite their loss of the name. Consequently, the headline is much funnier when read with the tone of a wrestler trying to hype up something. "Oooh yeah!"

Lastly, because you need a smile amidst the fray.
