What were political cartoonists up to last week?
Well, Thanksgiving came and went south of the border last week. All of a sudden Christmas is now right around the corner. Glenn Beck's making headlines. Some wonder why. And Oprah announced she'll soon be ending in her talk show.
In Canada, the former Liberal leader's wife took aim at Michael Ignatieff, the current Liberal leader, in a rant on Facebook. It was the latest in a series of gaffes experienced by the opposition Liberals. A top diplomat blew the whistle on alleged knowledge by Canadian soldiers that Taliban prisoners were being tortured after they were handed over to the Afghans. The allegations come on the eve of Stephen Harper's visit to China, where he was expected to raise China's human rights record. Oh, yeah. Seems we have something called the Grey Cup this weekend between the Montreal Alouettes and the Saskatchewan Rough Riders.
