His hit song United Breaks Guitars was breaking the hearts of musicians more than a year ago.
There’s a graphical interpretation of swine flu’s impact to this point. It could get a lot worse quickly, but it’s been minor so far.

Civic election results in Regina. Not too surprising, and I was high in my prediction by 6%, for mayor.
I can’t believe this news didn’t make it to my eyeballs earlier this month:
A large meteor exploded over Indonesia with the force of a small atomic weapon. No reports of injuries were available in the news I read about it.
To the conspiracy theorists out there that think protesters faked being beaten up by House of Commons security the other day, feast your eyes on this bit of video evidence:
The conspiracy theorists should hope that Custer isn’t eager to jump into lawsuits against people who have defamed him by saying he staged a beating for sympathy.
You can hear/see the protest here.
I’ve learned how to be vindicated in initiating an unjustified war that causes mass destruction and death. It involves convincing John Gormley that you’re eloquent when you can’t speak publicly without confusing “universality” with “university”, and getting intimate with a Saskatoon crowd that has paid big money to see you.
So if you need to commit a war crime, just clear it with wealthy conservative Saskatoonians who get their information from Fox News, and John Gormley, and you’re “vindicated” if you can get the RCMP to protect you instead of enforcing the laws of Canada.
…All this [debt] could be yours! All we need is a retractable roof instead of social services.
BC Place doesn’t just suck because its roof is old. It’s also the home of the BC Lions. Oooh, burn!
A copy/past error, and proofreading oversight for the ’09 categories needed to be corrected. Perhaps now the CBAs are in line with at least some of our previous detractors. If not, I wish them well running their own complimentary blog awards for their desired categories, and/or a pleasant Fall.
We apologize for using the old description of the GBLT categories, which could be read to lumping in feminists with the GBLT community. The description has been fixed.
However, I feel the need to explain some of the thinking behind the category structure this year.
This year, we have decided to remove all of the political categories (which include the conservative, feminist, non-partisan, and progressive categories) with the exception of the “best political” category itself.
The main reason why we decided to go this is because we’ve noticed in previous years, what has happened is an all-out war between different sides of the political spectrum, with some people resorting to subverting to nominations process, trolling, and negative campaigns (not pointing any fingers here.)
Another reason why we decided to remove all of the political category except for best political blog is that we’ve notice that other national blog awards did not have as many political categories as the CBA’s did.
We realize that there are going to be people that are not pleased with this approach, but we feel it is the most fair approach and will give the volunteers of the CBA more time to focus on ensuring the best awards process possible.

Half of the fun of the Canadian Blog Awards while I’ve been helping to run it, has been the unbelievable levels of complaints and boycotts surrounding a fun and friendly online competition where all Canadian bloggers can compete and gain a wider audience for about a month. At times it’s stressful, which is why I asked NBCDipper to take the lead in running the CBAs this year, and so far he’s doing a fine job. I have some cooperative business to attend to over the next few weeks so might not have lots of time to put into running a national blog award website.
