The Sincerest Form of Flattery?

Well, it would be unreasonable to expect Hamilton, a city of half-a-million people just down the road from Canada's largest city (Greater Toronto Area, five-and-a-half million) in the most densely populated part of Canada's most populous province (Ontario, 13 million people) to be able to offer the same level of neonatal care as Buffalo, a post-industrial ruin in steep population decline for half-a-century.
I won’t get into the relative merits of the American and Canadian health-care systems here. Suffice it to say that there obviously need to be more neo-natal intensive care unit beds up here. Thankfully — and this doesn’t mean that the American system is better (after all, at least the couple and their baby are guaranteed care up here, thanks to our public system, even if it’s not perfect) — there was an opening south of the border.
Washington, 23 June (WashingtonTV)—The United States said on Monday that its invitations to Iranian diplomats to attend 4 July celebrations were still standing, despite the continued crackdown on demonstrators in Iran.
WASHINGTON, June 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Grilled steak and barbecue ribs are the sure fire winners for a perfect meal for Dad, according to a new poll conducted by the American Meat Institute. More than four in ten (42 percent) Americans chose steak and 14 percent chose barbecue ribs as the best dishes for dad on Father's Day.
According to the poll of 1,000 Americans on May 16, hamburgers (13 percent) rounded out the top three meals. Meat dishes dominated the top picks, while veggie burgers were selected by just 2 percent of respondents. Other meat picks that Dads love include: barbecue chicken, grilled pork chops and grilled lamb chops.

ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA; NEWS TO BE ANCHORED FROM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE
Tue Jun 16 2009 08:45:10 ET
On the night of June 24, the media and government become one, when ABC turns its programming over to President Obama and White House officials to push government run health care -- a move that has ignited an ethical firestorm!
Highlights on the agenda:
ABCNEWS anchor Charlie Gibson will deliver WORLD NEWS from the Blue Room of the White House.
The network plans a primetime special -- 'Prescription for America' -- originating from the East Room, exclude (sic) opposing voices on the debate.
I can guarantee you this, though. If I were to pick up one of my guns, walk into a busy area, and start pulling the trigger, I would be up on first degree murder charges before the last casing hit the ground.
CONCORD, N.H. -- A Jackson man has been indicted on charges he voted for president twice in November's election.
Thirty-one-year-old Christopher Luke Fithian faces one felony and one misdemeanor charge of wrongful voting. The grand jury accused him of voting in Gorham using a ballot for the unincorporated township of Pinkham's Grant, then voted again in Jackson, using the town's general election ballot. It's not known whom he voted for.
Saying he hopes he's "cleared part of this up," Letterman extended an invitation to Palin to come on the show as a guest.
You know who was in town this weekend, went to a Yankee game? Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska. And she was up there with Rudy Giuliani. They were sitting together. And their seats were, well, let me tell you where their seats were. They were way, way in far right field. They were so far right. Crazy.
Sarah Palin got there early and she was taken to her seat, shown to her seat, by Joe the Usher.
While she was at the Yankee game, Sarah Palin managed to spend $150,000 on hats and t-shirts.
But Sarah Palin — it was exciting, because everybody loves New York City and she spent the entire weekend here in New York City. And late yesterday afternoon, as a matter of fact, she actually pulled out her rifle, and she shot that thing on Donald Trump’s head. Tremendous weekend.
Big night for Angela Lansbury. She won a record fifth Tony Award. And she was named acting president of General Motors. Did you know that?
The newest nominee for the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor, broke her ankle at LaGuardia Airport. Broke it in three places. And listen to this, at least two of those breaks have to be approved by the Senate.
She broke it right out there at LaGuardia Airport, stumbled on a thing and busted her leg, very painful. But fortunately, Rush Limbaugh’s maid was right there at the gate with a little. “Here, try a little…”
And then, Rush said he hopes her ankle doesn’t heal.

Ronald Reagan proved just as slick, kicking off his 1980 campaign at an all-white Southern church and pledging himself to "state rights," which is rightspeak for keeping the black man in his place.
Like the New Left, the New Right advocates "power to the people" —its "people" being largely white, male, and Christian.
Governor Deval Patrick is tapping the architect of Barack Obama's presidential campaign to help run his bid for reelection next year, an indication of the type of political star power the governor may be able to utilize as he seeks another four-year term.
"What I'm excited about is bringing about change," Plouffe said by phone yesterday.
Waukegan police said a clerk at a guns-and-ammunition store appears to have shot a man who was trying to rob the establishment this afternoon.

He was transported to Exeter Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Liebenow.
No one else was hurt in the incident.
CONCORD — When Gov. John Lynch outlined his budget proposals for 2010-11 in February, he said New Hampshire, like the country, was facing an "unprecedented fiscal challenge" and he was open to the legislative changes that would come in the process.
To find funds to plug an estimated $500 million to $600 million revenue shortfall in the 2010-11 biennium budget that lawmakers will finalize this month has led to an expansion of fee-based programs and initiation of new ones, including the following:
- Increasing permit fee for out-of-staters to carry a concealed weapon from $20 to $100 to raise $1.7 million.
[City officials] also said Hamilton wasn’t arrested for mowing the grass: He was arrested for not complying with a police order to stop mowing the grass.
