Express Post

To wind down the long day.

Two hundredth anniversary of the War of 1812. We won.

If this had been straight-up euthanasia, no one would care:

A family whose 98-year-old mother starved to death in hospital has received an apology from the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.

Anne Rostecki starved to death in 2009 in Seven Oaks Hospital after suffering a stroke and being unable to swallow. She wasn't given food for two weeks and her daughter, Rozalynde McKibbin, said the family was never told.

The health authority apologized on Friday but never explained why it took three years.

Sad but true.

Luka Magnotta arrives in Montreal. Let the freak-fest begin.

Did you know that tomatoes are a filthy infidel food? It's true. Some guy said so. It will turn you into a Christian:

...A Salafist group called the Popular Egyptian Islamic Association has come under fire after sending out a warning on Facebook urging its followers not to eat tomatoes because the vegetable (or fruit) is a Christian food. 

The group posted a photo on its page of a tomato - which appears to reveal the shape of a cross after being cut in half – along with the message: “Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian. [The tomato] praises the cross instead of Allah and says that Allah is three (a reference to the Trinity).

[God help us]. I implore you to spread this photo because there is a sister from Palestine who saw the prophet of Allah [Mohammad] in a vision and he was crying, warning his nation against eating them [tomatoes]. If you don’t spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.”

This makes BLTs the ultimate infidel sandwich. You have the bread- possibly a heathenish ancient grain or multi-grain bread (whole-wheat might be skirting things). You have the pagan lettuce with its alluring round shape and crisp green leaves. Then there are the tomatoes (see above). The mayonnaise, I don't need to tell you, is most wicked and sin-inducing. Then you have layers of salty bacon.

It's blasphemy. Delicious blasphemy.


And now, animals that can fit in the palm of your hand and brave little furry troopers.

More pepperoni-bacon pizza for me I guess.
