The Mayor of Toronto, everyone...

I have nothing to say beyond this screen shot, which pretty much says it all. Just so someone has a record, indicating that yes, this was a real thing that happened.

#NavyYardShooting - adventures in missing the point

At a time when the appropriate human response is shock, sympathy and sadness, it boggles my mind why some feel the need to springboard into a personal talking point—on both sides of the table.

Put down your agendas for a second, everyone. Stop. Listen. Pray. Offer sympathy. Be an actual human being. There will be plenty of opportunity to talk policies afterwards. A still-unfolding tragedy is not the time or place.

Wii U GamePad helps almost-blind daughter play first video game

This might be one of the coolest video game-related stories I've ever read.

I know there's a lot of Nintendo haters out there, especially with the less-than-stellar performance of their latest system, the Wii U. But it's stuff like this that makes me think that Awata, Miyamoto and company are doing a really good thing by targeting the living room gaming crowd, and not just the basement gaming crowd.

If you haven't seen THIS yet

...you really, really ought to. Disclaimer: contains mild language, and a whole lot of truth.

It's not often that I recommend that anyone listen to a Jon Lajoie song, but this one in particular is actually pretty spot-on, as far as media commentary goes. Kind of makes the Kelly Oxford post from yesterday seem hypocritical.

If you haven't seen this yet

...you really ought to.

In response to this...

I like your style, Ms. Oxford. Keep up the good work.

Popular opinion

Disregarding all of the media commentary for a second, this is what at least one group of web survey participants thinks about Justin Trudeau's recent admission of having smoked pot as an MP three years ago.

Keep in mind, this probably has more to say about readership demographics than anything, as I doubt you'll get the same numbers on a site like Sun News Network. Not taking a cheap shot, just saying—likely a different opinion among that particular set of readers than those here.
