Crazy Cabby

I was on my way to the Royal York hotel last night for yet another Christmas party, and the cab driver that was taking us definitely had a few loose screws. From the second we got in the cab, he spoke in a casual monotone manner and basically explained to us that Cab drivers are ...

Bush named ‘Person of the Year’

George W. Bush has been named Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year”. When I browse to CNN, you would normally see something like this as the main news article, but it was bumped down to the second most important news article, because the car bombing in Iraq today that killed 40 people took priority. I ...
