You’ll never see the PC media writing about who’s doing the actual killing in Toronto. You’ll have to read Mark’s articles to get the reality.
But, of course, we’re inclusive to a fault, so that’s politically impossible. Multiculturalism obliges us to be non-judgmental: don’t blame anyone--or, if you have to, blame the Americans. “The U.S. is causing violence to be exported to my city,” Toronto’s mayor David Miller said. It’s estimated that half the guns used in Toronto murders are American. On the other hand, over 80 per cent of the fellows using those guns are Jamaican gang members. And, while it’s hard to seal thousands of miles of mostly rural unmanned land border, it shouldn’t be impossible to insulate yourself from the pathologies of a small distant island. Except that, just as Muslims kneel toward Mecca, Canadians only point fingers toward Washington.
A very interesting article on google, its past, present, and future.

Coren reviews the election results.
The best thing about the entire process? Our new PM used the phrase, “God Bless Canada” after he won. It’s been a long since that was said by this nation’s leader.
Sometimes, all you can say is wow.
Valuev, boxing’s tallest and heaviest champion ever, is a hero in Russia, controversy or no controversy.

Finally, a columnist who understands Howard Stern.
Most interviewers hold back. They want to be liked, want to be polite. Not Howard and the gang.
They pushed. And it didn’t matter how big the star was.

Thank goodness we’re giving our border guards weapons, because this story is disgraceful.
Vic Toews, who will soon be a part of the government after serving as opposition justice critic in the Canadian parliament, said he did not relish the sight of border guards leaving their posts, although managers took over and officials insisted that security was never compromised.

Use this example to all who say their vote doesn’t count.
Tony Clement, touted by many as a possible minister in the new Stephen Harper Conservative government, won the Parry Sound-Muskoka riding by just 21 votes Monday as he defeated Liberal incumbent Andy Mitchell.
Mark has some words on PM in waiting Harper.
In a very Canadian kind of revolution, we rose up yesterday and threw the bums out but gave them a soft, fluffy landing, nevertheless installing in office a minority government that somehow managed to get itself elected despite having the word “Conservative” in its name.

Liberals and Conservatives could learn from these two.
Gohan and Aochan make strange bedfellows: one’s a 3.5-inch dwarf hamster; the other is a yard-long rat snake.
Not voting should be criminal.
I have to agree with good ol’ Peaches’ point.
Peaches Geldof is appealing to celebrities to stop giving their children ridiculous names
Geezus, is nothing safe any more?

Mark doesn’t think there will be a Conservative let-down in 2006.
As it was, the Tories could barely muster triple figures. Are we building up to another let-down?

Boy, time and bad decisions sure can devastate.
The once-stunning Grammy winner was photographed at an Atlanta gas station at 4 a.m. one morning last month, looking disheveled and bizarre in pajama bottoms, a $50,000 fur coat and a messy wig.
Thank goodness we can always pop in the DVD to restore her beautiful image in our mind.
The cartoon says it all....I’m going to vote today in the advance poll. You should too if you think you’ll be busy Jan. 23.
It was mildly amusing the other evening to watch NDP Leader Jack Layton try to explain away the news story disclosing that he had surgery at a private clinic in the 1990s.

If the Conservatives win only one seat in Ontario, let it be this one.
Could it be bye-bye, Belinda?

Some people have more money than brains.
Watch a 19 year old guy blow $100k at Disney World, second-by-second..
Mark doesn’t worship with the eco-cultists.
That’s the new buzz phrase these days: climate change. We’ve got to stop it, or change it back before it destroys the planet. And, if it doesn’t destroy the planet, circa 2011 the Kyotocrats will be citing lack of climate change as evidence of climate change.

Conservative majority? Seems hard to believe, but I like it.
Another explanation on why the Western world’s native population is in decline.
Unlimited sexual activity without a live baby resulting is the quintessential modern entitlement.
I call this modern view, consumer sex.

CBC reports that Stern was off to an explosive debut today. I listened to the whole uninterrupted 5 hours - and boy was it great.
Shock jock Howard Stern debuted on satellite radio Monday, tossing off a federally banned expletive and offering up a hearty sampling of phone sex.
How ironic that CBC, a part owner in Sirius Canada, doesn’t notice the irony or seem to even care that not carrying Stern in Canada was a serious mistake.
Sirius, which has partnered with Standard Radio and the CBC for a Canadian satellite radio network, is not carrying Stern’s new program in its initial offering in Canada.

Wow, it’s good to be optimistic about a fatal disease…
...but lung cancer sure kills fast.
The Arizona Republic talked to Rawls, who’s being treated at a hospital in Los Angeles. He points out that others diagnosed with lung cancer are still “jumpin’ and pumpin”’
Soul singer Lou Rawls passed away Friday morning in Los Angeles after losing his battle with lung cancer.
