Four In The Afternoon: Fortified With Spider-Man

4 in the Afternoon1 THE OLYMPICS, WOO! OR WHATEVS The Guardian is live-blogging stuff.

2 THE COUNTRY WE LIVE IN The premiers are peeved that the feds are cutting $36 billion from health care spending,  a former aide to Stephen Harper has been charged with influence peddling and British Columbia’s premier wants a bigger piece of the Enbridge pipeline pie.

3 THAT’S A LONG WAY TO TRAVEL TO BE UNEMPLOYED Immigrant Irish pipefitters aren’t happy they were laid off by Monad Industrial. The workers signed contracts to work on a mine expansion but were laid off with no guarantees of work after the project was delayed. Looks like they might have jobs in Alberta, though. Pending proper documentation.

4 CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY A former United Nations observer says the situation in Syria is really, really bad and the Assad government is going to fall. That regime’s always been terrible. I hope the country finds peace soon.

LET’S HAVE A VIDEO Spider-Man! On a trampoline with a happy kid! And yeah, it’s probably worth watching to the end. (Via Videogum)


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.

Prairie Dog editor Stephen Whitworth was carried to Regina in a swarm of bees. He's been with Prairie Dog since May 1999 and will die at his keyboard before admitting his career a terrible, terrible mistake.
