This is News?

Oh, for Christ's sake, on page 2 of today's newspaper (page 2!) there's a picture of that big googly-eyed "runaway bride" woman, mowing the lawn as part of her community service. I won't say which paper, as it is one that I normally respect, ie not one of those Sun pieces of crap. But is there not real news happening all over the world, godamnit? I give you Iran, Iraq, withdrawal of Gaza settlers, nuclear disarmament talks, fatal oil well blowout at Brooks, toxic derailment at Lake Wabamun, premiers' conference...

I don't want to see or hear any more about that goofy woman, but at least she had the decency to wear sun glasses in the photo so we didn't have to look at those big googly-eyes.
