"If we keep treating brown people like crap, the media will continue to tear us a new orifice on a regular basis. So what if we don't treat brown people like crap? Let's try that and see what happens."
YOUR DINING ROOM TABLE MOMENT: Commenter "name already taken" goes all Steve Janke/Inspector Gadget on us:
What happened to this chap's original Canadian Passport? Sold? Lost?
Yes, that's a tough one, all right (emphasis added, naturally):
Mr. Mohamed's stay in East Africa began in 2004, when his mother brought him to live with relatives in the Somali port town of Bosaso. He had been struggling in Canada, and a doctor felt that being around his extended family might do him good. Ms. Issa stayed with him for several months as he settled in, then left, taking his passport with her because she feared it might be stolen. When she arrived in Toronto, Canadian officials confiscated the passport because it was not her own.
Canada's conservatives: Because reading comprehension is for other people.
