Six In The Morning: I Don’t Want To Talk About It.

1. JIM HAS BAD NEWS An increase in EI premiums that was to take effect in January will now be halved.

2. TIME TO GO? Apparently the rumours that have been circling about the potential eviction of Occupiers in Victoria Park are true. The city has confirmed that it plans to remove the protesters, citing bylaws that say camping in the park is illegal. Occupy organizers are holding meetings today and a response is expected to be delivered on Wednesday.

3. COMIC RELIEF We could all use a good laugh right about now, yes? Well, Herman Cain is only too happy to deliver.

4. NOW, THIS IS JUST ENTRE NOUS… Nicolas Sarkozy is overheard telling Barack Obama that Benjamin Netanyahu is “a liar”.

5. I IMAGINE, THIS MORNING, THERE’S MUCH WE’D LIKE TO FORGET Researchers are working on helping patients work through bad memories and phobias through neuroscience.

6. AND NOW, TO COMPLETELY DISTRACT YOU… LESTER BANGS & LOU REED! The Guardian is celebrating the 10th anniversary of ‘Rock’s Backpages’ by republishing an article on Lou Reed by the late Lester Bangs.

  1. Bros, mixed emotions on the removal of the occupiers. Regardless of their disjointed message and the intentions of several of the occupiers, overall I respect how long they’ve put up their fight, but I think the city has seen the escalation across other cities and wants to put it to an end before anything happens here. With temps dropping, probably for the best. They’ve made their point, time to leave.

  2. Funny … a politician calling another politician a liar … so does that make him an honest politician or does this create a paradox??

  3. Did all the occupy protest camps across Canada/US cities think they’d be there permanently? I don’t think so.

    There is only so much patience/tolerance before we say “All right, you all made your point…time to leave.”
