Don't get on Megan Kinsella's bad side. The deceptively diminutive Kinsella has a wicked mean streak, as this reporter quickly learned. Before he could even introduce himself, he was subjected to a violent verbal barrage regarding the lack of coverage of the Dinos swim team in the Gauntlet. Point taken.

Last weekend at the Alberta Senior Swimming Championships, the Dinos kicked some serious ass, winning almost every race and sweeping several. It is with good reason, then, that the Dinos seem a little cocky.

Did you know Conrad Black has an insatiable thirst for Sunny De-light? According to a source close to the magnate, he gobbles at least four litres of the stuff every day. The source described how a distraught Black once drank as many as nine litres of Sunny-D in a single sitting. "Conrad had juice dribbling all over his chin and down his neck," the source reported. "He could barely force the stuff down, yet as soon as the carton was gone, he beckoned for more. I hesitated. 'Sunny-D...' he gurgled. 'Give me more Sunny-D!'"

Editors, the Gauntlet,

Re: "The revolution of public transit," Jan. 11, 2001

I do not consider myself right-wing, car-addicted or any of the other fairly sweeping categories I must fall into according to your editorial, and was concerned by the misuse of information and false premises on which this editorial was based. It says something when an Economics 203 professor spends about 10 minutes of the class bashing your editorial, using it as an example of what a "crank" or "charlatan" is.

Aren't you glad to be back? Don't get me wrong, my parents are great and I'm sure, like most of you, it's a comforting thought to have not become a biological failure. But no matter how nostalgic you get, it's good to be back in Rez.

A lot of you can relate when I say, no matter how good a home cooked meal is or how amazing your mum's Christmas cookies are, there's only so much you can handle and only so much time you can spend with your parents during the holidays without wanting to alienate yourself from them.

My hand hurts in protest when I touch the keyboard. But hey, that's fair. I'm about to defend Stockwell Day. I've made fun of him twice in print this year already and I'm itchin' to do so again. And wow! Here's Day, stuck in a stupid lawsuit, using public funds to defend himself over a stupid mistake. Great! Here's Mr. Tax-cuts, the protector of the private investor and the critic of inefficient and high-spending Ottawa. Here he is using our tax money to defend his sorry ass in court. I thought I'd have a field day with this.
