POST-LABOUR DAY NEWS FROM NOWHERE

I don't have much to say today, really. Watched football and the Jerry Lewis Telethon on Monday, Labour Day, as usual.

I dunno about you, but I got the impression that maybe this year could be it for Jerry hosting the telethon. He was MIA for a good portion of the afternoon and only showed up for the last hour or so. Also, he was really emotional at the end of the show, more than he usually is. I always wonder every year, watching the telethon, whether Jerry will still be alive to see the next one because of all the health problems he seems to have, but this year I was left really wondering. 

I noticed Calgary blew out Edmonton 52-5 in the CFL. That is just atrocious. Richie Hall should just quit as coach, his team is so bad they all might as well pack it in and go home.

In other news, two of Australia's independents announced in the past 24 hours they would vote to keep Labor in power after that razor-thin election they had. And New Zealand is recovering from a big earthquake Friday.

This past weekend, audiences took a machete to Machete, giving the box office win to George Clooney and The American.  

Kara DioGuardi is the latest judge to bail from the sinking ship that is American Idol. Some rumors say she was forced out.

I have written up a movie column wrapping up the summer box office and looking ahead to September. I will post a link to that once it goes up. As well, the Toronto International Film Festival commences later this week and you can read more about what is happening here. The opening movie Thursday will be Score: A Hockey Musical. That is it for now.
