Steve Jobs has returned to work after a liver transplant five and half months ago. He will be working at the office a few days a week and telecommuting the remainder.
This is a sigh of relief not only for the economy but also for the tech community, us geeky nerd types, who think of Mr. Jobs as one of the tribe. We at Radio Free Canada wish Mr. Jobs continued health and many more years of life.

Happy Birthday to the actor who is Inspector Japp on the Hercule Poirot series. Mr. Jackson was born on June 18, 1948 in Retford, Nottinghamshire, England, UK.

I am tickled that he was born on the same day (different year) as me.I am a fan of the Poirot series and I think that Philip Jackson acts as Japp perfectly.

I hope that he has many more years of acting.

that James Bolam has received a Member of The British Empire knighthood for his acting career.

The seventy-year-old actor, who is Jack Halford on New Tricks, has the knighthood as part of Her Majesty's Birthday Honours List.

The knighthood is well-deserved for a man who is a spokesperson for Cats Protection, a cat and kitten rescue service in Britain. Mr. Bolam has also, with his lovely wife Susan Jameson, championed the cause of kind training of dogs. He is a humane and decent star that has done good not only in his career but also for those creatures that have no voice against maltreatment. Radio Free Canada congratulates him and acknowledges his birthday on June 16th,1936 We wish for him and his wife many more years of happiness.

The Christian media is feeling the economic pinch. Several evangelical magazines have folded including Today's Christian Woman and Campus Life.

Welcome to the funeral. I do not feel sorry in the least that the conservative religious media has the same financial worries as us atheists, Pagans, feminists, gays, and liberals in the downturn. This should be a rude and long-time coming awakening for the evangelical set that what is important to their communities is not religion and lack thereof, or the "pre-born", or sexual orientation but the basic survival needs of food, clothing, and shelter. The Religious Right, in its hubric quest to take back America, has lost the country. There is no salvation for evangelicals, or for those of us who are "unsaved", but to regard the current difficulties as secular problems to be resolved without appeal to any deity and with rational concern for science-based goals. The Religious Right should put aside its piddling so-called moral agenda and pitch in to create a society without want and without fear.

I would gladly, as a vegetarian, like to see People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals go up in flames. The organization, which created such iron-deprived idiocy as comparing butchering animals for food with the Holocaust, has now capitalized on the Dr. George Tiller murder with the witless slogans of "Pro-Choice? Go Vegetarian." and "Pro-Life? Go Vegetarian."

Original, it ain't.

I honestly could run a better media campaign than those bunny-hugging losers which would be more appealing to a general audience. I would emphasize the health and ecological benefits of a vegie diet. Ya know, something that engages the intellect that PETA members so sorely lack.

PETA has outlived its usefulness for the vegetarian cause. The organization should be put away like the downer cow it has become.
