Hey, so BC isn’t energy dependent (even though the energy minister thinks so), the Feds Undercut BC’s Oil Spill Prevention Panel, and BP’s top-kill efforts have failed. In other news, I am going to start drinking vodka through my eye.

But we have more important things to worry about, like making billboards out of gold, getting Buzz Lightyear to tour the Sea Wall, and whether or not the new residents of Olympic Village should be able to smoke. I bet Magnasanti doesn’t have these problems.

The (Only) Ten Basic News Stories (or “how the news producers grab and hold your attention”). Yeah, that’s great but did you hear about this grow-op and those home-invaders and that plane crash? But most importantly, did you see that Grieving chihuahua became a mom to 9 kittens? Omg, omg, omg, omg, omg…sooooooo cuuute!
