The Story Of Two Pictures
At the Vatican:
Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean, Governor General of Canada, meets the Pope [Source].
So to meet the Pope, our hot Governor General has to dress more like a Muslim woman than Muslim Turkish women politicians, university lecturers, Air Morocco stewardesses, Tunisian women, ... as opposed to when she dresses up for a toast.
My question: What will she be wearing once the Italian government bans the burkha?
Meanwhile in Bangladesh:
Egged on by other supporters, a Bangladeshi kid, aged 10, throws a rock at the police [BBC].
Today I went to vote in Toronto's municipal elections. Such elections are taking place all over Ontario today. My name wasn't on the list, so they checked my ID and had me fill out and sign a form before giving me a ballot to vote. I voted and left.
There were no policemen at the voting station. There was no army on the streets. There were no riots. The center was staffed by senior citizens and high school kids.
In Bangladesh it's not even voting day. No one is even sure when the election will be and who will run. And already there is chaos. I am beginning to think these people only understand the language of the stick.
