Dear Readers:
The old saying goes that history is written by the victors.
In Quebec, an addendum may be necessary that notes it is re-written by the victors of the most recent election.
That’s right kids, if you thought the bitchin’  French had run out of ways to cause trouble, you’re mistaken   ……………………., they have more tricks up their sleeve!
(What it boils down to is that the French are just plain “poor losers!” and second raters. I think it was Churchill, or somebody else in the first half of the twentieth century, that was heard to say: “The French are the greatest ‘second raters’ in the world!”)

The Toronto Star reports that Quebec’s sovereigntist government is planning to introduce a high school curriculum that teaches history “through the lens of French Canada’s unique travails, including its struggle for nationhood.” (Read as: “The way we see it!” -Ed. )
The course will be tested in 90 classes across the province next September. Among other topics, it will address the founding of New France, the British conquest and the ongoing issue of sovereignty in Quebec.
Some have expressed fear that the new curriculum is a plan to strengthen the separatist cause, by getting to young Quebecers as they are forming their opinions on the subject.
“The most reluctant speakers said that above all they worried about an overly patriotic version of history, closer to propaganda than to the discipline of history,” wrote the authors of a report on the curriculum, according to the Star.

Bhg3c7MCEAA9g4mResidents of London were in a real mess this morning after a reported water main burst in the streets of Kennington, creating a feces-filled flood. Don’t you just love the smell of sewage in the morning?
Visual journalist and innovations specialist Lewis Whyld tweeted a series of photographs of what Londoners are calling the #poonami or #londonpoo. The hashtags of this dirty disaster went viral as Londoners are trying to deal with this “apoocalypse.”
The company responsible, Thames Water, posted on its website that repairs are underway. They apologized for any inconveniences the flood of sewage may have caused. Inconveniences? Ya, how about the inconvenience of poo all over your new shoes. Not to mention the foul smell.
Folks, your seriously mistaken reporter started looking through the London Free Press, and watching the local news, before I realized they were talking about LONDON, ENGLAND!
Hats off for Walter Williams, the poor son-of-a-bitch died yesterday!
Or did he?

untitledThe coroner was called to Williams’ home in Lexington, Mississippi,a community north of Jackson, where family members believed he had died.
Howard says Williams had no pulse and was pronounced dead Wednesday at 9 p.m.
Early Thursday, workers at Porter and Sons Funeral Home were preparing to embalm Williams when he started to kick in the body bag.
viktor-yanukovych1Family members were called and Williams was taken to a hospital. Howard says he believes Williams’ pacemaker stopped working, then started again.

Somebody got a hold of former leader of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych’s diary yesterday, and sent this in to us!  Dear Diary: ‘Well, that didn’t go well!’
untitledHere’s the scene, boys and girls: A guy is walking around his own backyard, but he’s NUDE!
So far, these are the bare facts!
The Mokena police arrested  Richard Ermel, 60, on a charge of disorderly conduct after he “walked around naked in the yard” of his Elm Avenue home in May, according to court papers.
untitledNora Facko, 59, allegedly saw Ermel and his state of undress …………….,. and that was enough to “alarm and disturb” her, the papers said.
But in December, Will County Judge Cory Lund found Ermel innocent of the charge.

Ermel struck back at the neighbor he allegedly ‘alarmed and disturbed’ with his nudity.
Richard Ermel filed a lawsuit against neighbor Nora Facko in Will County court.
Ermel accused Facko of malicious prosecution, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
(We’re keeping our eye on this one, folks!)

IT WAS  MARCH 1989 or thereabouts that the World Wide Web was born.
web-http-url-address-internet-online-www-270x167The exact date of the creation of the World Wide Web is debatable, but we’ll accept any excuse for a party, so The INQUIRER is taking the date he is said to have written the paper to celebrate the first quarter century of the World Wide Web.

Berners-Lee – now Sir Tim – was initially looking for a way to use the internet, which had already existed for some time, to improve communications within the CERN complex in Switzerland where he was a computer scientist.
These days, we associate CERN with the Large Hadron Collider project, but it’s worth remembering that the World Wide Web’s genesis was also there.
At that time, of course, most of us were just getting to grips with the ZX Spectrum +2A, or perhaps the Atari ST, little knowing that a quiet revolution was taking place that would change computer users from outsiders to the geeks that inherited the earth.
Nine years ago, we published an article celebrating 15 years of the web browser. No one could have imagined the impact that invention would have on the world.
Today, the web carries everything from the way we research essays or navigate cities and how we communicate with friends to the way we find a date. It has enveloped every aspect of our lives from the smallest daily activities to the largest life events.
Lest we forget, without the World Wide Web, The INQUIRER most likely wouldn’t even exist.
So here’s to you, World Wide web. A great revolution in the history of human communications has taken place during our lifetimes, and we might well consider ourselves privileged to have seen it.

imagesAFYRD3IENews from the politically correct left is that you can no longer punish a dog who is being house trained ……………, by rubbing his nose in the poo!
From now on you are only allowed to give the dog a good talking to.

And then a “time-out!”
