Your Jerrold-less (I save the best for last) morning news roundup for Friday January 11th, 2008:

Julian Falconer has come to this conclusion: "We suspend [students] in droves; it fails." Well d'uh, the last thing you want to give a bastard who beats people up, sells drugs, and/or assaults women in school is free time while his/her parents are quite possibly not at home so they can beat people up, sell drugs and/or assault women outside of school as well.

A pilot is saying that his plane nearly did a freakin' barrel roll because a computer gave out and he had to fly the plane manually. There goes my future as a pilot, so many wasted hours practicing flicking the auto-pilot switch on Microsoft Flight Simulator, GONE!

Three families have been left without a home after 9 propane tanks exploded in Brampton.

Laura mentioned a few weeks ago that the circus was coming to town for those who want to audition for the position of spaghetti limbed flipper bouncer. Forms and info can be found over here. In the meantime why don't you watch this video of an absolutely freaky performance from someone with jello for bones.

A suspect is still at large after robbing a fast food restaurant. Police arrested the "cook," if a fast food joint can be said to have such a thing, on suspicion of being in cahoots with the guy who emptied the safe.

Jerrold has promised to man-up and do da brew next week, and no, he didn't share the cookies with anyone.
