The rocky road to...

...Allen's Snackbar...will of allah

The last known member of the Barcelona terror cell has been shot dead after he was cornered by armed police. Police said Younes Abouyaaqoub shouted “Allahu Akbar” just before he was gunned down outside Subirats.

Abouyaaqoub, 22, had fled Las Ramblas on foot and is thought to have killed a 14th person to take his car and escape from the city.

Five other members of the cell – including Abouyaaqoub’s brother Houssaine - were shot dead by police in the coastal town of Cambrils early last Friday.

Problem solved... no more Nazis

nazis everywhereWent to Kingston, Ontario yesterday to do some shopping... they have a Lee Valley Tools... and ran smack into an... wait for it... anti-nazi demonstration. They were taking up half the street and the imbeciles at the front with the banner kept pushing over into the other lane to totally stop traffic.

The usual mix of smelly old hippies and obvious welfare types. One East Indian woman and a half dozen Chinese (clearly university students), but otherwise hastily recruited po' white trailer trash.

Asked the female bicycle cop leading the raggedy ensemble whether they actually had a significant nazi problem in Kingston... she smiled, shrugged and looked away. Half a dozen cops who wouldn't be fighting crime just babysitting these fools for hours. Easy money on a hot summer day, I guess.

I had to explain the news to a young gal at work today. Selling emotional "news" to get people talking is a desperately-competitive big business. It's not about keeping you "informed."
