Romi Reads The News [5]

13 Dec

Good Sunday to you all.

Here’s the news, better late than never…

First a shoe, now a statue – A statue was thrown (or was he punched?) at the ever scandalous Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi who was signing autographs during a rally in Milan. An innovative, but an extremely silly thing to do since the assailant is already in custody. Drawing blood from an Italian prime minister? Not so smart.

Tiger loses another sponsor – and no one is surprised.

Hopenhagen – as the summit continues, U.S. responsibility over the Alberta oilsands has surfaced, and activists are a plenty (and are arrested left, right and centre).

And finally, my two favourite weird news pieces this week:

In the most Willy Wonka fashion, a man dies from exploding chewing gum, and a woman was arrested for impersonating a witch and scamming a lawyer out of over $100,000.

Happy trails to you.

This is what was on the wire this week:

Reverse Chris Brown? — To soon? Tiger Woods was in an accident. Did his wife beat him? Did she save him? Did he cheat on her? On the next Young and Athletic.

Russian Bombing — Questions surrounding the derailment of a train bound for St. Petersburg are slowly being answered. Now, a bomb is thought to have detonated on the tracks. Yet another terrorist attack. Scary.

Inhumane society — The arrest of OSPCA bigwigs based on allegations of animal abuse, mistreatment, and neglect forces Ontarians to reassess the way animals are treated in shelters on a national scale (or at least it should). Continue reading

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. Continue reading

…It’s true.

Ladies Can’t Jump: Female ski jumpers will not be competing in the Olympic games this February. Sad day. Truly one step back for equality in the games. Ski Jumper Lindsay Van even compares the IOC to the Taliban: “It’s like the Taliban of the Olympics,” she said. Ouch.

Larry Inappropriate King Show: Oh the joys of Rebulicanisms. Carrie Prejean, Ex Miss America contender and star of her own sex tape turned “writer”, needs her privacy. For someone to go on a TALK show, she doesn’t give Mr. King much to talk about other than her allegiance to Sarah Palin. At least I got my crazy fix for the week.

Topol Quits Fiddler On The Roof: Clearly the biggest news of the week, mainly because I (my parents) spent almost $100 on a ticket and now he’s out. I feel betrayed. So much for Tradition (….tradition …….. tradition!). I guess I can make do with 4 time Tony award winner Harvey Fierstein.
