Anyone see anything wrong with this picture?

Me neither. I think that all officers should have monks robes. It was probably just Halloween.
[EDITORS NOTE: the LONG rant about the IOC, "most favored trading nation", the US govt, Clinton, Bushes, Iraq, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Darfur, Cambodia, Cuba, Burma and Iran has been redacted]

[CHIEF EDITORS NOTE: Only half of that rant was actually written, but it was getting a bit "name call-y" and juvenile]
I know these are complex issues. I know that I don't know the whole story of anything around me. This picture might be photoshop'd. I have to say though (outside of the above), that I am sick and tired of duplicity: of doing the right thing as long as it doesn't cost too much; of deluding one selves and those around them by pretending to do the right thing, but doing only for personal gain; of defending blindness to the sighted, and of feigning righteous sight to the blind.

I cast this damnation inward at times. I am not above reproach and the principle is not lost on me. Its just the pure evil and grandiose scale of some of this shit is mind boggling to me at times.

What kind of world is this?

How do you solve a problem like Alison?

Alison made it to the top 10 of "How do you solve a problem like Maria?" on CBC!

This is a really big accomplishment for her and I think that it is incredible. I'll be spamming everyone to remind them on how to vote soon. Mark 5 minutes on your calendar for Sunday between 8:00pm and 3:00am EST to throw down some votes for a good cause. This is already a life changing experience for Alison, but if she were to be cast in this role it would be just about as good as it gets.
