This morning as I logged onto Facebook, I came upon this image. Having followed the Boston marathon and MIT shooting coverage initially, I lost some interest when it came down to the “hunt.” As much as justice matters to me, so does tact and class, and the sensationalism of manhunts always leaves me uncomfortable. I also knew it would be a matter of time before the political rhetoric would change from the victims and wounded to the demographic factors of the suspects—namely race and religion. And alas, it has.

1. Homosexuality is not natural -- much like eyeglasses, polyester, fellatio, indoor plumbing, and birth control.

2. Heterosexual marriages are valid because they produce children. (As we all know, infertile couples and old people cant legally get married, as they are utterly barren.)

SARAH PALIN'S endorsement of Kelly Ayotte for U.S. Senate should neither surprise nor upset the other campaigns. The race will be won by the candidate who impresses New Hampshire voters, and New Hampshire voters are rarely impressed by what outsiders have to say.

The late-night comedian received a gift this week, and his name is Rand Paul.

On last night's "Real Time," Bill Maher unleashed the first salvo in what is sure to be an ongoing series of jokes mocking the Kentucky GOP Senate candidate and Tea Party hero, whose extreme views have sparked considerable controversy.

I migrated to Canada along with my immediate family in 1983. Though, at the time being young, I did not realize or predict the repercussions of such an indelible mark on my own history along with its future scars and scabbing, I now whole-heartily recognize the inevitable consequences. Migration as a voluntary or involuntary act is very symbolic in its nature for the innate sentiments it invokes: illusory senses of belonging to a geography bearing ones primary and unmatched memories. As much as the memories are tangible and profound, the illusion of "belonging" carries a perpetual nostalgia for the foregone or forsaken objects, relations, loves, and lifestyles.

In our old site, blog was one of our most read sections. Don't ask me why. I have no idea.
That is why we installed this component for our registered users.

However, before posting anything, you should know that although this section does not need editorial approval, most of our submission policies still apply.

My suggestion is before posting first to read http://www.mwcnews.net/home/submission-policy.html in order to avoid deletion or worse termination of your membership.

Enjoy your blog
