Sunday Funnies

In Canada last week, editorial cartoonists had a field day with the problems facing Opposition Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff. He and his Quebec lieutenant had a falling out over who would run in one of the provincial ridings in the next election. The lieutenant resigned and allegations were made the leader was surrounding himself with 20-something political tykes from Toronto. Party members were questioning Ignatieff's leadership abilities.

Meanwhile, in the United States a couple of infamous politicians were releasing books last week and relations between America and Iran were definitely heating up in the wake of Iranian President Iamanutjob's appearance at the United Nations and rumours Iran was building nuclear weapons.

Imagine. Blago with a book deal. The little pip must be out of money. Look at the bright side Blago. It wasn't your money to begin with. As far as Obama and his "toughness" are concerned, I have a nine year old granddaughter that could stare him down. Ooooooh. Tough!

Wow, it appears that the publishers are a bit more lenient than they are here in the US. Although I don't know a thing about Canadian politics, I find it these cartoons very interesting. I particularly like #3.

Don: Haha, I guess you and the last cartoonist have the same view, hence the pillow. (Hey, nice review at Stumble. Thanks, man.)

Me-Me: Some of them cut close to the bone don't they.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
