Gorilla Radio for Monday, December 4th, 2006
And; the ancient Chinese curse is a wish one's enemies live in "interesting times." I don't remember getting on the wrong side of the ancient Chinese, but I'm not alone in that: Today we all live in the most interesting times ever seen. Wars and rumours of war, pestilence, famine, and death stalk the planet, unchallenged by any adequate power of good; but, it is also a time of unprecedented access to myriad new mediums of communication, where the outrages perpetrated against men, women, and children, some seemingly for no better reason than terrorizing the people, are answered with moral outrage expressed across those emerging mediums.
And; Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with all that's good to do in and around Victoria this week. But first, Bill Jeffery, exploring what's on the Canadian plate.
