Why Do I Need A Subject Line Anyways? - May 21

Today must be a slow news day. That's not to say nothing is happening, just that nothing of significance is happening. I still came up with some good stuff for you, my dear reader, so all is not in vain.

Tit for Tat Dep't: Four Palestinians were killed by an Israeli rocket, which naturally prompted a response. Those adherents of that 'religion of peace' tried to take out an El Al plane with a RPG in Geneva, Switzerland. Fortunately, the attempt against the plane and its passengers failed.

In Nepal, there's been a bit of a political earthquake as the king has been removed from power. What this will mean for the future of the growing Nepalese church is very much up in the air.

Mother Nature is fighting back. And winning handily, I might add.

There's been some flooding in the Eastern Townships (Quebec) and parts of British Columbia, prompting evacuation of affected residents. Further north, there is a shortage of Arctic ice which is startling Environment Canada. Internationally, that volcano in Java is still quiet, but now Monserrat is erupting.

Let's Go Oilers!: Last playoffs, Calgary Flames were the Cinderella story. The '06 playoffs are proving to be another boon to Alberta as Edmonton takes Game 1 against Anaheim. Not since the days of Gretzky, Messier, Coffey and Fuhr have the Oilers been this deep. I'm also rooting for Buffalo to beat Carolina as there are many Sabres season ticket holders in Southern Ontario. The next best thing to an all-Canadian final, I guess.

I've got two unusual links here. One talks about using water as fuel (!), the other about homeopathic medicine. As always, take everything you see on the net with a serious grain of salt. Looks interesting, though.

Whew. Not bad for a slow news day.

Be not conformed to this world ....
