Six In The Morning: Zimmerman, Syria, Watrous, Hell’s Angels And Cornetto

6-in-the-morning1 SYRIA: IT’S NOT GOOD Snipers opened fire on a convoy of UN inspectors who are in Syria looking for evidence of chemical weapons attacks. Meanwhile, Syrians living in Regina are frustrated by what they see as international inaction as an evil government attacks its own citizens.

2 THEY’RE NOT LOOKING FOR ANGELS The Xtreme Mining and Demolition company has banned Hell’s Angels gang members from working for it, according to a really good, interesting story by Jason Warick in today’s Saturday’s StarPhoenix.

3 A THREE-HOUR TOUR The Watrous RCMP got tangled up in an epic  pursuit of a stolen truck that started near Watrous and ended in Last Mountain Lake. Literally IN the lake.

4 JUST AN UPSTANDING CITIZEN ALL AROUND A U.S. court has approved a $10 million settlement in a class action lawsuit against bankrupt fossil fuel exploration company that lied, lied, lied about its assets to pump up its stock price. Guess who was a director named in the lawsuit? Go on, guess.

5 A KILLER GOES GUN SHOPPING George Zimmerman is just awful.

6 WELL I GUESS NO ONE SHOULD EVER STUDY HISTORY OR ENGLISH OR GEOGRAPHY OR ART Apparently everyone who goes to university should study medicine or law, according to a study that reveals Canada’s staggering failure to produce good jobs.

LOOKING FOR A FUN MOVIE TO SEE THIS WEEK? The World’s End is a blast. If by some miracle you haven’t heard much about it yet, that’s terrific — the less you know, the more you’ll enjoy it. So don’t watch the trailer. Don’t read Jorge’s very positive review yet. Just go see it. Because it’s great.

Of course it’s great: it was made by the guys who made this movie:

  1. Everyone I ever knew that took english or history in university collected degrees perpetually while working at Value Village.

  2. Hey Broseph – a lot of people I know that took English degrees are exceptional journalists…something the world is running out of at break-neck speed because the masses seem to think that news can come from any shithead with a smart phone.

  3. Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  4. Barb, my word is bond, I can troll you to the edge of the known universe. You might wanna get Ctrl-C some of those zeds to save wear & tear on yr left pinky (or thumb, if you’re a mobile browser).

  5. Ars longa, vita brevis? Ah! Now I understand all that Buzzing from Barb!
    She’s either……
    1) Raiding a bee hive again.
    2) Shaving unmentionables.
    3) Touching the wrong end of the chord again.
    4) Enjoy the simple pleasures of life A LA VIBRATOR!

    – Syria keeps getting worse.
    – What does anyone expect? They are no angels.
    – RCMP still got their man!
    – I’m guessing PAM Anderson!
    – George Zimmerman should live like George in The Jungle with guns!
    – Hey, I’m studying the study and find it’s all a bunch of hooey!
    I’ll wait for the World’s End to come out to the Rainbow Theatre!

  6. Sorry to be so dull, mb, but none of the above: the buzzing refers to irritating insects.
