Maybe it's time for "The Bushman" to pull his troops out of Iraq to help his own people??

      Anonymous

It took the largest disaster the United States has seen in contemporary history to get Dubya to cut short his vacation at his Crawford, Texas, ranch and return to Washington a full two days ahead of schedule. I think the man has done enough.

Q107 has indeed pulled 'New Orleans is Sinking' from their playlist for the time being. They've also done the same for Led Zeppelin's 'When the Levee Breaks'.

A sensible and sensitive move, I suppose. Not unlike the weeks following 9/11 when stations stopped playing popular new songs like "Bleed American" and "Bodies".

Hey Mike, lets hope your Raging Storm does not peter out to a little wind with a bunch of old leafs blowing in the wind.

Good luck in the playoffs.

      The Grinch

The forecast is calling for a harsh storm, tearing up everything in its path. Batten down the hatches!

      Ania

Ania, you caught me in the middle of a "Hallelujah"-themed weekly MP3 spurt. Last week was Jeff Buckley, this week is K-OS and soon we'll hear the original from Leonard Cohen. If you can't wait for it, give me your email address and I'll email it to ya.

With all due respect, I'll pass on the Polish songs.

Youv'e missed the most important bands of All time for your definitive albums - Where's The Beatles, the Beach Boys, Alice Cooper - can't wait too see who else you've missed!!

      Twins From Bolton

First of all, my informal list of definitive albums is coming off the top of my head and is based on the alphabetical order you see here. That explains why you won't see The Beatles or The Beach Boys until "T". As for Alice Cooper, I'm actually a big fan and had I not missed him I'd have listed "Killer" as his definitive album.

Hey Mike,

Lucky you, paying 97 cents a liter of gas. Here in Montreal, we're paying 1.16$ ! (Regular). We're not that far away, but for some reason, we get the chance to pay 20 cents extra each liter. Woohoo..

Oh yeah, BTW, GO HABS GO ! :) Can't wait for the season to start.

      Louis

Let me see if I have this straight. You're being forced to pay an extra 20 cents for gas and you root for the Habs. Sounds perfectly fair to me!

Finally our baseball season including playoffs are done - it's been a long 6 months (gym workouts, practices & games) throghout Southern Ont. We could have played this coming weekend (Tecumseh), near Windsor but we would not have had enough players & I decided not to participate as we would have probably lost our 1st 2 games anyway playing AAA teams & we are an A team.

Eric Lindros - listen to your heart & not your head. You have always wanted to play for Toronto & now is your chance. John F.jr., take a chance for the Minimum + bonuses as he still has the ability. Put Tie Domi on his line & nobody will touch Eric - just like Dave Semenko & 99.

What have we else to look forward to - NOTHING (who else of noteriety has signed with Toronto). Eric L still has a name & he is still young. Take a chance.

      Twins From Bolton

I'm with you re: #88. There's a great upside there if he can stay healthy. Even though his stock has fallen in recent years, I'm still a big fan of the way he plays the game. If he plays well, and Belfour stays healthy, we'll be playoff bound I'm certain.

From CNN: "Justice: 'Serious flaws' in death penalty" (http://www.cnn.com/2005/LAW/08/07/death.penalty/index.html)

According to the anti-capital punishment Death Penalty Information Center, more than three dozen death row inmates have been exonerated since 2000.

Said [Kent Scheidegger, legal director of the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation, a pro-death penalty group], "I wouldn't say that 20 or 30 cases out of 8,000 constitutes a broken system."

Really? So it's okay to murder, as long as it's only 1 out of every 400? What a maroon.

      Anonymous

This is one of the reasons I've never been comfortable with the notion capital punishment. It seems rather barbaric, unethical and unproductive. Studies continuously show the death penalty doesn't act as the deterrent you'd expect.

Mr. Scheidegger is spouting typical lawyer rhetoric. Those 30 of 8,000 wrongfully on death row are merely those who have actually been exonerated. It's safe to assume many more innocent men have been sentenced to death, but Mr. Scheidegger would by okay with that as well. It pleases me that we don't practice this cruel and unusual punishment here in Canada.

Mike, come on, get your head on straight. If you're a Leafs fan you should be used to supreme disappointment. Its all part of the Leafs annual fall.

      The Grinch

Of course I'm used to this, I was a fan in the 80s, but that doesn't make it any easier. What's really bugging me is the way Ferguson claims he's got a plan and things are going okay. I read a quote from him in which he said he have a top line centre, a star goalie and experienced defense. Can we please fire this guy?

Holy cow, Boonman!! The Leafs lose both Gary Roberts & Joe Nieuwendyk in the same day. Wow, I mean granted that they aren't young, but still. I guess I would have expected Roberts to leave and not Joe. The other fantastic transfer is Chris Pronger going to the Oilers, oh man fantastic but they should have tried to keep Eric Brewer. He is a talent. And I turned 29 yesterday.

      Roshan

Yes, I'm well aware quality hockey players are happily joining new franchises that don't play their home games in Toronto. Have no fear though, I've heard we might coax Gretzky out of retirement to suit up for the blue and white. Unfortunately, it's Brent.
