I blame Canada.
The world lost a really genuine person who tried at least as hard as Jim Carey and Steve Carell, to make everyone laugh.
Aww shucks, Williams was priceless.
Let’s try to use this time to give hope to those with depression, and turn this problem around for countless people.
Added: Williams had an early stage of Parkinson’s, no doubt adding to his depressive state.
John Oliver has it right. Who “gives a shit” if 1 in 4 Americans are wrong about a fact? The “news” should stop polling to find out what proportion of Americans are wrong, unless they want the rest of the world to laugh harder at them.
Do owls exist? Are there hats?
Leave your answer in the comments.
Americans hear this on their news last night.
“Feds Issue Tighter Regulations For Trains Hauling Highly-Flammable Crude”
Canadians are told this of their explosive oil in unsafe train cars.
“B.C. municipality chaffs at railways’ requirement for secrecy about dangerous cargos traveling through town”
You have to wonder if the Harper Conservatives really don’t give a shit if they vapourize a few more Quebecers. Will your town be next?
Roxie’s song is called “Hey Valentine”. I met her at Access 7 while I was there to appear on TV too, for Regina Car Share Co-op. Our interviews are on Access Talk of the Town today at 2pm and 5pm.

I noticed maybe a month ago that this Brand guy had a brain, and it’s a good one.
Paxman: “You’re not going to solve world problems by facetiousness.”
Brand: “We’re not going to solve them with the current system! At least facetiousness is funny.”
To detract from Brand’s point, there is still value in democratic elections, and voting. Where it’s lost value, is in races where consent to power by the majority is not really granted by anything other than their staggering ignorance of the issues and the candidates’ stances on them.
It ruins credit scores for people who aren’t even their customers!
Bell isn’t much better. They sought unowed money from my parents, after my parents regularly paid their bills to Bell, and had credit card statements to prove it, but Bell’s accounting department was in such a mess, it had multiple places to send money to, and didn’t communicate balances across their offices apparently.
The comment section of the CBC story about Rogers is littered with other people who’ve had similar disasters with national wireless companies. Yet the Con’s ‘thrown’ speech they are tossing at Canadians is said to make it easier for people to get into billing arrangements with these vampire companies. Pick-and-Pay? More like Pay-and-Pray you don’t rue the day you signed away your money to these cable and wireless goons.
