Romi Reads The News [2]

22 Nov

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, it must have been uncomfortable.

Here’s what you missed:

Housewife Apocalypse–a.k.a. Oprah is ending her show in 2011. Dr. Oz and Ellen, you’re under a lot of pressure to deliver. Think about giving away cars.

Fare Hike–More like unfair hike. Just kidding. The TTC has to do what it has to do to keep it running well. I just hope everything doesn’t go to shit post Pan Am.

Canadian Torturers–For most, these two words don’t go together, but Richard Colvin, a former diplomat situated in Afghanistan alleges there have been cases of abuse carried out by Canadian soldiers. Tories deny deny deny. Waiting for the skeletons to come out of the closet.

Afghan support–Countries are asked to support Karzai’s government amidst allegations of severe corruption. Slippery slope?

Swimming on the moon–A NASA spacecraft that crashed into the moon revealed more water than ever expected. A Beaches resort is set to open there next year, swim up bar and all.

Leafs Win Saturday Game–2-1 against the Washington Captials. Hey, I’ll give credit where credit is due.

Harper Hypocrisy–Not really hard news, but Harper recently talked to a room full of journalists at the Ethnic Media Awards about the responsibility they have to “shine light into dark corners”, yet refused to take questions at the end of the event. You can’t have your cake and eat it too, Harper……I guess you can, what can we do about it?

Happy Newsing.
