Just Leave The Poor Folks Alone! 
Day after day, I'm hearing new updates in the news about the sextuplets born to some people in Vancouver who don't want anyone talking about them.

So my question is this... why can't the press just respect their privacy and let it be?

What value is this story to the rest of society when the family doesn't want it to be news? It's not something important that affects the rest of us.

Sure, it's a little interesting, and if the family didn't mind then they could stand tall and proud and enjoy the attention, but they're obviously not that sort of people. If they want to be left alone, I think they should be.

It seems that the more they ask for privacy, the more the press seems to want to stick its collective nose it.

If ever I get the urge... remind me not to go having a whole litter of kids all at once.

Saddam is Dead 
I can only think that nothing good will come of this. :(

If all we've been told is true then the world is certainly better off without him but you can bet his followers (or opportunists) will make him out to be a martyr and the violence in Iraq will escalate.

They should have probably just left him to rot away in prison.

Interesting and probably frightening times are coming.

Where's my 25% pay raise? 
The provincial government has voted themselves a 25% pay raise, the theiving bastards.

They're doing a piss poor job of running the province, stealing money from us left and right, most recently through the power company and Children's Aid Society, and now they're just handing themselves more money for no reason.

If they honestly felt that the job deserved such higher pay, they should have passed the bill and had it take effect following the next election. At least then they could be voted out before they benefit from it.

As it is, they just dipped their collective hands into the pockets of this province's taxpayers and stole themselves a nice Christmas gift.

Bastards.

Christmas Cheer? 
I haven't had much to say around here lately. I wonder if maybe I'm just experiencing a bit of good will for the holidays?

I'm really looking forward to having Christmas dinner at my sister's place on Saturday. As usual, it's going to be a whole lot of driving but we really don't get to see each other all that often so it's worth the effort when we do.

Happy holidays, everyone! Hopefully your shopping is done by now so you don't have to deal with the hordes of rabid shoppers infesting the malls these days!
