  Iraq-a rock-a da vote goodPDF files may take a moment to load

I voted in the Federal election this past spring. My polling station was at the fire station at the top of my parents' street. I drove there, it took about 45 seconds, the lady gave me a pencil, I marked one of the three names on the ballot and handed it back to her. In the parking lot I ran into my friends Ashley and Cliff and we decided to go for a beer later. Good times.

This past Sunday in Iraq, ah, well, not so much.

Re: "The Killers-Hot Fuss" CD review, Sept. 2, 2004

You are a dumb@$$ [sic] with no taste in music. The Killers are the best thing to come out of Vegas since Liberace or whatever his name is. Hot Fuss is a great album.

YOU SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [sic]

Re: "The happy Harper fun hour," Jan. 28, 2005,

Ben Hoffman criticizes Stephen Harper and opponents of same-sex marriage by using the analogy of a redneck from "down home" to paint Conservatives as small minded.

  The homosexual spongePDF files may take a moment to load

Recently, the We Are Family organization released a video to grade-school children in the United States featuring a line-up of popular children's television icons spreading a message of tolerance and diversity, among them the alleged homosexual lifestyle advocate-cum-animated yellow sponge of Bikini Bottom, Spongebob Squarepants. This video has religious conservative groups like Focus on the Family up in arms, accusing liberals of spreading a pro-homosexual agenda when they are merely spreading a message of diversity.

  Happy New Year...AgainPDF files may take a moment to load

5000 years ago, the solar calendar did not exist. To compensate, the lunar calendar was developed in China to keep times and dates. Chinese farmers used this cycle to govern their harvesting cycles. This calendar kept a firm set of 12 months at 29-30 days each to create a 354 day year. The first day of every year was set on the first new moon of spring, usually falling around the beginning of February.

  Good Cause, Not so Good ConcertPDF files may take a moment to load

Landing somewhere in the space between a rock concert and a telethon, we have the concert for tsunami relief, benefiting the victims of the tragedy in South Asia. Hosts Brent Butt of Corner Gas and Canadian icon Rick Mercer engaged in playful banter between sets as a who's who of Canadian pop stardom donned the stage. After an awkward opening set by an unceremoniously not introduced band, the night's festivities were set to begin.
