Winnipeg finally gets an NHL team back, the lowly Atlanta franchise, while, with the finals starting tonight, Vancouver is the favourite to win the Cup. Canada rejoices!

The Existentialist Cowboy: How Sarah Palin, if successful, could prove Darwin utterly wrong. (Not really, but it's a concern.)

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. I'll be here all week.
