My fave was securing Zimmerman's guns!

There's something definitely wrong with that guy.

Wow...and I thought our country was...ahem, screwed up. Reading about that Quebec charter today, I see the idiocy is spreading...or has it been spreading down for a while? ;)

Iowa are writing THE ONION's column for them.

The Quebec provincial charter of values is really stirring things up...quite unnecessarily to my mind. My own view is they should spend more time with economic policies or social programs and not this stupidity.

Oh, yes, you are absolutely right, Indigo. I think we see eye to eye on that.

I like the Lucy football cartoon.

I like that one too.

The charter will never get adopted. For the first time the division is not along linguistic lines. Much of the French speaking majority are against it. Along with 97% of the English speaking minority. There was a rally on the weekend against the charter. And sadly, there is another rally this Wednesday in Montreal to protest against the use of English in Montreal. Its embarrassing to live here. We need the Canadiens to win the Stanley Cup or something for a proper distraction.

Well, then, I guess we'll be waiting awhile, eh?

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
