Joe Btfsplk Jr.

I see that Joe Btfsplk, er, my old Report colleague Jeremy Lott had a really bad day recently.

He's living it, but he ain't loving it. Hope he gets some good news soon.
Ambler appeal

I don't have the wherwithal to help my old Report colleague, and undaunted paleocon blogger Kevin Michael Grace, but perhaps you may be able to help.

Good luck, Kevin...

A doubleplusgood post

A Two Minutes Hate at The Toronto Star.

I'm happy to note that my former editor at B.C. Report, Terry O'Neill, has a current affairs discussion show, X-change, which airs sometimes (it's on tonight) on Now-TV, Vancouver's Christian Tv station.

Cool. We Reportniks are everywhere!

World magazine's weblog

The "worldmagblog" for the US Christian conservative newsmagazine can be found right here.

I wonder if the blog's webmaster is of German heritage with contractions like "Worldmagblog"? It's home of "Der Worldmagblogposts" and "Der kommentvonderworldmagblogposts", perhaps?

Teasing aside, well worth your time to look at it.

Not a test

Michael Jenkinson writes that they used a Canadian version of the Emergency Broadcast System during a recent nasty storm in Alberta.

I wonder what M.J., a wrestling boffin, thought of Chyna's autobiography, which I am reading as a light reading break. (I (I buy wrestler bios when they are very very cheap. I liked Mick Foley's first book best.)

More seriously, here's a quote from a recent post of Michael's:

UPDATE: August 12, 8:36 a.m. On a wing and a prayer
I know there are a lot of good Christian bloggers out there, so any of them that stop by here can pray for a dear friend of mine who is battling cancer. Much thanks.

"This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. This is only a test."

Doooooooooot! [High pitched squeal]

"This has been a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. Had this been an actual emergency...."

Does the EBS still exist?

(I watched too much US TV as a kid. I miss Conelrad....)

We now resume your regular weblog programming.

Where is Spy Magazine when you need it?

Am I wrong in wondering why one never sees
Canadian politician David Anderson and chess champ Bobby Fischer in the same place at the same time?

Probably. :)

Goes 0 to 60 in 10 seconds when pushed off cliff

Damian comes across a new Yugo that hasn't moved from the dealership storeroom in 14 years.

I wonder if anyone sells Trabants on EBay?

Feet of clay

It hasn't been updated in a few years, but the Bob Larson Fan Club homepage reports some interesting information on the U.S. vangelist and expert on demons and exorcisms. Reader beware, I would advise, but interesting.
