Basil's Bavarian Bakery

I was unusually hungry this morning, so I picked up a pack of chocolate pecan cookies from the truck at the train station. They were made by Basil’s Bavarian Bakery, which is nestled in the heart of Bavaria – inside the Biscomerica Corporation headquarters in Rialto, California. The cookies themselves weren’t any worse than you’d expect, although it’s always good to see a warning “may contain traces of nuts” on the package of NUT cookies you’re eating.

Todd Bertuzzi has just been suspended for the rest of the season, which will cost him over half a million dollars. This comes on the heels of his press conference yesterday, where he repeatedly started crying. (Although I prefer the term “blubbering,” because it casts Canada as a land of whale-hunting primitives.)

The Bertuzzi incident proves at least one thing. As an American, I am SHOCKED at the violence that is a part of day-to-day Canadian culture, and I am worried and alarmed that we are sharing a border with such a bloodthirsty, out-of-control nation.
