Monday Musings - July 26, 2010

  • Leading off, we've got a fun and interesting article by Stephen Marche explaining how Conrad Black and the Black Bloc are similiar

  • Speaking of Conrad Black, it takes a lot for me to agreee with a Toronto Sun editorial (especially in these days of utter lunacy), but I agree with this one.
    One thing that's been bugging me about some Black supporters is their insistence that he was forced to give up his Canadian citizeship by Jean Chretien. Chretien did put barriers in front of Black when Black wanted to become a member of the House of Lords. But ultimatly Chretien forced Black to choose what was more important to him: being a Canadian, or being a member of the House of Lords. Black chose the House of Lords and thus to renounce his citizenship, showing where his priorities lied. I'm not sure why Canada should bend over backwards for him now that he's decided it's more convienient for him be in Canada.

  • Damn you Joey Lawrence, why do you have to come across as a nice guy in interviews? (Also, how are you younger than me?)

  • This profile of Abdullah the Butcher in the New York Times is a bunch of awesomeness. You get Abdullah essentially mocking a promoter, Tommy Rich working the reporter and Abdullah working the marks for more cash. (In a related note, I own the referenced DVD and will probably review it once I actually watch it.

  • Give the Daily Star credit: When they screw up, they don't half ass it (Daily Star website might be NSFW)
