Cheer up

We've got nausea! We've got nausea! We've got nausea! How 'bout you? More than 200 people, most of them cheerleaders, reportedly became ill with diarrhea and vomiting after a cheerleading competition Saturday at Everett's Comcast Arena.

Coincidently, the Everett Silvertips hockey club returns to Comcast Arena on Saturday night, and it's Silvertip Souvenir Medical Face Mask and Hand Sanitizer Night.


Enough, already: The rabidly anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church, which has made headlines picketing the funerals of U.S. servicemen and women, says that it will protest the memorial service of two brothers, 5 and 7, who were killed by their father in an explosion Sunday. The boys' deaths, a church spokeswoman said, were God's curse for the Legislature's recent votes approving same-sex marriages.

The Buzz would never advocate picketing the funeral of Westboro founder Fred Phelps when that day comes. But we will dance on his grave.


Don't know much about history: On this day in 1841, Upper Canada and Lower Canada were united under the British Parliament's Act of Union.

Despite the legislation, Upper Canadians insisted that their Lower Canadian brothers continue to sleep on the bottom bunk.
