Slow News Day?


My go-to source for news is the CBC.  Sometimes it's CBC Radio One, sometimes it's their Andoid app for news and other times it starts at

Just now, after looking at the clock in the top right corner of the screen and seeing it's almost 5pm, I popped over to to see what's going on in the world.  Here's what I saw:


Either it's a slow news day or CBC has their priorities messed up.  Personally, I'm happy for William and Kate and wish them well as they start their family, but I'm not sure Kate's pregnancy is so news worthy that it has to dominate the front page.  Good on 'em, but I don't really care.

And this is Canada where winters can actually be cold and snowy.  Learning Environment Canada thinks we'll have a typical winter isn't at all news worthy.  In fact, it's pretty much the opposite of news.  Everything is typical here... no abnormalities to speak off.  Carry on!

Life is certainly good when the top news items are that a healthy 30-year old newlywed is preggers and the usual Canadian winter may return.  Enjoy this while it lasts.
