Genocide 101

When the Toronto District School Board sets up its new Afro-centric schools... will they be dancing around current events?
-- NAIROBI, Kenya -- Ethnically driven violence intensified in Kenya on Sunday, and police officials said at least 19 people, including 11 children, were burned to death in a house by a mob.
I guess I just never understood what the problem was... with the way things were set up here in Canada.

On the other hand, even Kenya... previously held up as the jewel in the African societal crown... is beginning to resemble the SAW movie franchise.
Even the Kenyan military, deployed for the first time to stop antagonists from attacking one another, has been unable to halt the wave of revenge killings.

More than 100 people have been killed in the past four days, many of them shot with arrows, burned or hacked with machetes.

While we're talking education...

"Would you like company propaganda with that?"
McDonald's has won approval to offer courses which could form part of a qualification at the standard of A-levels or advanced Diplomas.

Universities secretary John Denham said it was an important step towards ending the old divisions between company training schemes and national qualifications.
Of course... not everyone is convinced this is the way to go...
"Just last week, a report revealed that some universities have concerns over diplomas. We are unsure whether those institutions would be clamouring to accept people with McQualifications."
No kidding.
