Ever since that Tunesian fruit seller set himself on fire over a year ago, many other Tunesians have been setting themselves ablaze due to the continuing poor state of affairs in their country. Some people's bucking children.
I found what that Toronto counsellor said about Torontonians being allowed to keep chickens in their backyards pretty shortsighted. Basically, he said that, since most young people today can't cook, why let people raise chickens in their backyard they can play with. What this official doesn't realize is that a proper understanding of where food comes from includes everything from raising a chicken to having it killed to cooking it in your kitchen and eating it at your dinner table.
Congratulations to those two local boys who sent a spaceship containing a Lego man into space.
