What a Law!
Writer 99

Shhhhhhhh! Oh that pathetic moment again. My cellmate is peeing again. I am on the upper bed and he is on bottom one. He is peeing right in the cell where there is a commode, but no lead.

My fault was that I worked outside - off campus. Being an international student, the so-called rules stated I couldn’t work off campus..

As seen from the Downtown Train
John Devenish

Heading downtown from Scarborough late in the week I was lost, as usual, in daydreams and people watching. The usual commuter mix was on the train, suburban hardcore urbanites, fashionistas, mallrats, afterwork business folks, retail workers and all manner and level of healthcare professionals..

Witnessing History @ Bloor Cinema
Kobi Annobil

Inside the Bloor Cinema, it felt like a Saturday matinee – the crowd cheered Michelle Obama as she made an appearance with Laura Bush and booed the smirking wheelchair bound Dick Cheney. Former Presidents arrived one by one. George HW Bush and the incumbent were both roundly derided, while the Clintons and Jimmy Carter received their own ovations. Slowly but surely, the parade of men and women who history has judged to be either heroes or villains continued, until there was only one man left to take the stage. CNN cameras zoomed in on Barack Hussein Obama, cool as ever, staring straight ahead as his name was announced ...

Mom's Story
James Wayner

In the early to mid sixties, my parents and I would sit and watch the riots down in the States. We watch policeman beating coloured people over the head. It also showed shops, restaurants, and water fountains having “White Only signs”. We would all say, 'glad we do not have that in Canada'....
