    The Toronto Sun ^ | Sept 6 2015 | MARYAM SHAH
    An agreement by federal party leaders to steer clear of Blue Jays games until Canadians vote on Oct. 19 drew giggles and guffaws from baseball fans after Sunday’s game. “I guess they’re bad luck,” Taylor Marr, 25, said with a laugh. The Grimsby man was surprised to hear the Jays had lost recently in games when Tom Mulcair, Stephen Harper, and Justin Trudeau were in the stands. “That’s crazy, they always win now; they never lose,” he said, shaking his head. But if keeping the Jays winning means Harper, Mulcair, and Trudeau have to avoid the stadium, so be it....

    The Daily Mail ^ | Sept. 2 2015 | Wills Robinson
    Taylor Swift's latest music video is being battered by critics who claim it is racist and pandering to 'rich white fantasies' from a colonial era. The video for Wildest Dreams, which was revealed during the MTV VMA Awards coverage on Sunday, has a mainly white cast and revolves around two 1950s-era movie stars - played by Swift and Gran Torino actor Scott Eastwood - filming in Africa. There are only two black actors, who play soldiers, and they appear in the background. The mock film crew are white. Director Joseph Khan insists the video is a 'love story' and has...

    In typical Kanye West fashion, the rapper delivered a rambling, nonsensical speech when he was presented with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs on Sunday night. Taylor Swift politely presented Kim Kardashian’s husband with the award, and after he stood silently on stage for several moments, he ranted about crashing Taylor Swift’s award acceptance speech six years ago. “And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”

    ¡Adios, America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole, by Ann Coulter, Washington, D.C.: Regnery Publishing, 2015, 400 pages, hardcover. Ann Coulter cares little for political correctness, and her sharp tongue generates enemies at both ends of the political spectrum. To many constitutional conservatives, for example, her foreign policy views are too aligned with the neoconservatives who led the United States into the Iraq mess under President Bush. Writing in May, Coulter still defended the decision to go into Iraq: “There were lots of reasons to get rid of Saddam Hus­sein and none to...

    British pop singer Morrissey said he was groped at San Francisco International Airport this week on his way to London, and now he's making waves by blogging about what he's calling a "sexual assault." On his True to You "Morrissey Zine" blog, the former Smiths singer wrote that prior to taking off from SFO on July 27, he was approached by an "airport security officer" who stopped him, "crouched" before him, and "groped" his private areas, moving away quickly when another officer passed by. Morrissey said two members of the British Airways Special Services were "horrified at the sexual attack,"...

    In 1991, what appeared to be a serious movie was released by 20th Century Fox, a serious movie studio. The movie, “Point Break,” featured two serious movie stars, Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves. It was helmed by serious talent Kathryn Bigelow, who would become the first female director to win an Academy Award (for “The Hurt Locker,” in 2008). It cost serious money — $24 million — and made very serious money, grossing more than $80 million dollars. And now, it’s getting a 100 percent serious $100 million remake, the trailer for which was released Tuesday (here). Yet, “Point Break”...

A description of the explicit video was provided by WFLA: The couple didn’t hold back. Bold and brazen with their bodies, they were grinding in full view. Bradenton Beach Police were called, and the couple was eventually arrested. The indecent encounter was captured by a sunbathing great-grandmother on her iPhone.

The owners of Maple Grove’s Maple Tavern could face felony resale charges for selling pints of Spotted Cow, a farmhouse beer brewed in Wisconsin and distributed only in-state, police said. The Minneapolis-area bartenders drove across the border and loaded up on kegs of the coveted New Glarus Brewing Co. ale before they were busted during a sting last week, KMSP reported.

The thrillseekers raced to keep ahead of six fighting bulls and six bell-tinkling steers tasked with trying to keep the beasts together along the 930-yard (850-meter) course from a holding pen to the bull ring in this northern city. Several runners were knocked to the ground and some were trampled on by the animals weighing more than 1,100 pounds (500 kilograms) but there were no gorings...
