Sunday Funnies

Michael Jackson's death and funeral and the saturation of media coverage caught the imagination of editorial cartoonists last week. As did Sarah Palin's resignation and Billy Mays' passing into pitchman's heaven. Speaking of heaven, Prime Minister Harper may or may not get there. One cartoonist thinks he has all the bases covered and that a communion wafer may not be the only thing he stuck in his pocket...

Sarah Palin. She's one I won't miss.

Let's hope her exit from public office is also an exit from the public eye.

Cdn Blend: Good luck with that. I'm afraid that's wishful thinking.

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ?

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.

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 hav
