The Reverend Brothers…

go to Osgoode Hall:

The Supreme Court of Canada/La court suprême du Canada has dismissed an application for leave to appeal the convictions of reverend Michael Baldasaro and Reverend Wally Tucker of the Church of the Universe. The church’s founders were found guilty of selling “small quantities of pot to an undercover officer,” which they consider a sacrament.image006

That’s the newsy bit out of the way. The Church of the Universe is a bit of a legend in these parts. Officially considered a big pain in the ass wherever they go, the Reverend Brothers, Baldasarro 77 and Tucker 61 just finished five and three-month prison terms respectively, got chased out of Guelph and set up shop in an old foundry here in Cambridge back in the 90’s. Curtis Gloade at the K-W Record penned a piece in 1998 about Cambridge’s attempts to move the practitioners out of town.

I have met both men, having shared gym facilities with the pair during their Cambridge stay. I’m trying to fathom the vast amounts of money spent in police, court time, lawyers fees and various appeals in order to give a combined eight-month jail term to two harmless old men.

Conservatives will remember Reverend Michael as a leadership candidate in 1998 for the federal PC’s. Sadly, Joe Clark won instead and the party became a laughingstock.

For more background, read this 1999 piece from Cannabis Culture Magazine and remember, thousands and thousands of dollars were spent to send these two fools to prison for eight-months. Somethings not right.

Saturday Fluffernutter – all the fluffy news about those nutty celebrities.

fluffincolorKeira Knightly appeared this week in a dramatic Public Service Announcement about domestic violence. marshmallow_fluff03In the piece Knightly is playing a movie scene that turns bad, and her supporting actor beats her up.

“I didn’t agree to this”

fluffincolorCTV’s highly rated sitcom Corner Gas will air it’s last episode on April 13th. Corner Gas takes place in the fictional town of Dog River Saskatchewan, it determines to prove there’s more going on than meets the eye in Saskatchewan, or as the theme songs says:

if you think there’s not a lot going on,
look closer baby, your so wrong.

Proving the rather new adage, don’t believe everything you hear in a theme song, the province of Saskatchewan is declaring April 13th Corner Gas day. Because if you think there’s anything else going on, look closer…

fluffincolorAfter 15 years on TV, ER signed off this Thursday. Not coincidentally, I watched ten minutes of ER for the first time in 13 years Thursday, and discovered that insomnia is not forever.

fluffincolorI’ve never been a Santana fan. To my ear Carlos Santana has got good guitar chops but I don’t like his style. Apparently the same rule applies to his thoughts as well. He’s on the mark that President Obama should legalize marijuana – prohibition has proven disastrous and foolish. But then he goes off a rant about education and “D movies” and simply proves that too much marijuana turns you into a babbling idiot.

fluffincolorMadonna was turned away from Malawi without a child this week, as the Malwawigian (Malawist?) Supreme Court ruled she could not adopt another orphan from that country.  I might have ignored this story as it rather bores me, except about a week and a half ago, officials from Malawi’s Ministry of Women and Child Welfare Development had the following to say, and it’s too good not to reprint:

Our official policy is that we do not encourage our children to be sent into broken homes. The news she is linked to another woman’s husband and a young man less than half her age makes us question her morals.

And how do you say “she’s skanky ho” in bureaucratise?
