In the midst of the awards season I was dismayed to read this headline: Spike Lee will skip the Oscars to protest all-white nominations.
Gee, that's really too bad because then we would have had at least one black guy there!
Last nights Democratic debate was considered a wash by most pundits with nobody really running away with it, but I was sure glad to see Bernie Sanders take the high road once more when faced with an insensitive and stupid question.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/bernie-sanders-goes-off-democratic-041432300.htmlSen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) criticized NBC moderator Andrea Mitchell for a question about former President Bill Clinton's White House sex scandal. During the Sunday-night Democratic debate, Sanders saying recently that the former president's indiscretions were "totally disgraceful and unacceptable." And he was irritated that Mitchell even asked about it."That question annoys me," Sanders said. Sanders complained that the media put too much pressure on him to attack the former secretary of state. "I can't walk down the street — Secretary Clinton knows this — without being told how much I have to attack Secretary Clinton. Want me to get on the front page of the paper? I make some vicious attack. I have avoided doing that, trying to run an issue-oriented campaign." "You didn't have to answer it that way, though," Mitchell said, referring to Sanders answer about Bill Clinton's indiscretions. "Then if I don't answer it, that's another front-page story," Sanders responded. He added: "His behavior was deplorable. Have I ever said one word about that issue? No I have not. I'm going to debate Secretary Clinton and Governor O'Malley on the issues facing the American people, not Bill Clinton's behavior."
I think that one of my favourite headlines from the weekend came from the blog Wonkette: "Democrats Have Civilized Conversation About America ..., Like A Bunch Of Grown-Ups!"
Elon Musk, the guy behind the Tesla automobile, the home power pack for solar energy, and SpaceX rockets, had a slight set back over the weekend when one of his rockets blasted of its launch pad, put a satellite into orbit and then came back for a landing on the same pad it took off from.
Oh, it landed O.K. but then ...........!
Well it seems that Sean Penn didn't rat out El Chapo, but rather a large order of Taco's did the trick.
The cops had been watching the house since construction there started on escape tunnels, and on the night in question there was a large delivery of tacos, which made authorities suspect that the boss was on the premises.
During the raid Guzman and his aide escaped through the tunnel, ran through the sewer system, and came out a manhole on a busy street.
When they hijacked a car the cops were notified ......, and they then tracked him down and arrested him!
When the cops were questioned if they were sure they got the right guy, all they said was: "Si!"
It's winter in Canada and what else can we say except that although people here in Southern Ontario are bitchin about minus 15 degree weather, those in Winnipeg are sitting in minus 45 degrees, the entire East Coast had disappeared in a snow storm, and people in Victoria are waiting for the crocuses to bloom!
God I hate them!
NOTE! CANADIANS WILL HELP AMERICA WITH THE WAR ON TERRORISM. WE HAVE PLEDGED 2 WARSHIPS, 600 GROUND TROOPS, AND 6 FIGHTER JETS. AFTER THE AMERICAN EXCHANGE RATE, THEY WILL END UP WITH 2 CANOES, 6 MOUNTIES, AND A BUNCH OF FLYING SQUIRRELS.
