Six In The Morning: Sit Down For This

6-in-the-morning1 ROOMING HOUSES Some people want ’em, some people don’t. Funny how a housing crisis causes problems and conflicts, eh?

2 PULLED ALIVE FROM THE RUBBLE Seventeen days after a sweatshop collapsed in Bangladesh, a woman has been rescued from the ruins.

3 THE HORRIBLE THINGS THAT AWFUL HUMANS DO Ariel Castro seems to be a very bad man. Also, that awesome-seeming guy who helped Castro’s prisoners escape has a checkered past, and there’s a good piece on that here. By the way, we also have missing women in Saskatchewan. What a world.

4 CANADIAN CONNECTION Accused terrorist Ahmed Abassi studied chemistry in Quebec and the FBI says he’s got a connection to one of the two Canadians accused of plotting to bomb a Via train.

5 IF YOU WANT TO STRIP WOMEN OF THEIR RIGHTS, YOU NEED TO ELECT THE RIGHT PEOPLE Oh good, it was save a fetus day again and jerkfaces be talkin’ ’bout they cray-ass agenda. What a bunch of creeps. Fuck their evil, manipulative little schemes. You know, maybe it’s not surprising that one in four Saskatchewanians now says phooey to organized religion. Eat that, Trost and Vellacott.

6 PARADE OF MISCELLANY The one-time top dog of the alternative press is in sorry shape, Saskatchewan may or may not have more jobs, the families of some Pickerton victims file lawsuits, The University of Saskatchewan projects a $3 million loss, A super-sketchy execution has been stayed in Mississippi, there’s a criminal investigation into that exploded Texas fertilizer plant, A gay rights activist in Belize is getting death threats and they buried the dead Boston asshole.

ARE YOU SITTING DOWN? Riker is, and how. Hat tip to Vanda.

  1. What an odd thing to say. I doubt very much that they read this blog. (And if they do? Hi guys! Thanks for reading! Change your moronic views on reproductive rights and same-sex marriage. They’re a god damned embarrassment. Thanks!)

  2. 1. The review of rooming/boardinghouse regulations is coming at a good time; kudos to the citizens who put this forum together. The rules do need to be clarified, for the good of all concerned.
    2. Seemingly miraculous survival is what keeps rescue/recovery crews sane in the face of great horror.
    3. & 5. I’m surprised that you haven’t picked up on the aggravated murder changes that may be laid against Mr. Castro. Give it some thought.
    6. One of the corporal works of mercy is to bury the dead. Somebody really stepped up,

  3. Using Grade Seven gutter language to describe pro-life reflects more on your stupidity than it does on theirs. I am pro-choice

  4. Oh I’ve picked up on it, Barb and my opinion should be predictable. On the one hand, more charges against that guy are pleasing. On the other hand, the crime described isn’t murder. It’s perhaps comparably monstrous.

  5. Brian: thanks for the comment as always. I’m not sure about that. Some would agree with you, others wouldn’t. Clearly, I was specifically describing poopyheaded anti-abortion activists trying to enact laws that interfere with women’s reproductive rights. Those people are awful. I don’t have any problems with personal opposition to abortion. That’s what choice is.

  6. I am just noticing the language more than your point Stephen. When it comes to the hot issue of abortion there are poopyheaded zealots on both sides
