Sixty years ago we saw the emergence of the great North American Middle-Class.
Sadly, those days are drawing to a close!

Canada’s middle-class is mortgaging its future to stay afloat, making the Canadian dream “a myth more than a reality.”
That’s the blunt assessment of an internal Conservative government report, an unvarnished account of the plight of middle-income families that’s in contrast to the rosier economic picture in this month’s budget.
The document was prepared last October by experts in Employment and Social Development Canada, the department that runs the employment insurance fund and other income-support programs.

News from the tech world that a growing number of social apps provide anonymity to users.
One of the most popular is Whisper.
It allows people to share secrets without disclosing their identities.
That’s right bunky, why temper your comments, and reply to stuff in a civilized manner, when ya can go underground and TELL ‘EM WHAT YOUR REALLY THINK!
They got trouble in RIVER CITY folks ……………………., or at least in Maryvale, Arizona, according to “Gawker!”
ku-xlargeTiny yappy dogs have taken over the streets of a small town in Arizona, chasing young children while their parents apparently cower inside, frantically redialing 311 — Maryvale Animal Control received more than 6,000 calls in the last year alone.
According to ABC 15, the four-legged Napoleons first conquered the area’s animal shelters, then turned to recruiting protection for their bone-running crew.
“Well the last time I seen six or seven Chihuahuas… and big dogs running with the Chihuahua’s in a pack running every single day,” Frank Garcia told Fox 10.
But Animal Control says they’ve been so inundated with calls they don’t have the manpower to patrol the streets.
Now residents say that the Chihuahuas have won — packs of 10-15 dogs have started to chase local children to school.
(Residents say the nipping at their heels isn’t so bad, but the constant yapping is driving everyone NUTS! -Ed)

News from the ‘talk show’ world this morning: CNN says the prime-time talk show “Piers Morgan Live” is coming to an end. Morgan succeeded Larry King in the 9 p.m. ET time slot three years ago, but his show has had lacklustre ratings.
untitledCNN said Sunday that the show’s final airdate has yet to be determined.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Fallon is being called the “nicest” guy on late night TV, but some people are saying that’s not necessarily a good thing!

As the week unfolded, Fallon emerged as nice. Ultra nice. He gushed over everyone. “I love this guy so much,” he said, introducing Bradley Cooper on Wednesday, for a forgettable chat. Almost simultaneously, competitor Jimmy Kimmel was having great sport with Matthew McConaughey on the subject of HBO’s seedy, white-hot new crime series, True Detective.

Thursday promised much, with Michelle Obama, Will Ferrell and Arcade Fire in the lineup. But it was an excruciating hour.
hjtObama, Fallon and Ferrell – the men in drag as teenage girls – delivered what was basically a Saturday Night Live sketch gone wrong. Way too long and overripe. Of course, Fallon supergushed over Obama when he actually sat down to interview her, but it was too clear she was controlling the chat. The conversation with Ferrell led nowhere, certainly not toward hilarity.
Don’t get me wrong: Throughout the week, Fallon was always adorable. It’s what he does best. That and gushing.
AND FINALLY: What’s your typical Friday or Saturday night like at the local police station, you ask?
