Working in Ottawa today --Wacky wavy inflatable arm waving terrorists

Good morning folks,

I will be working in Ottawa today.

Meanwhile, the wacky wavy inflatable arm waving guy will still be at his post on Dundas street alerting all an sundry persons of slashed prices on end of roll carpet remnants.

in a continuation of last weeks alert of celebrity haircuts, Justin Bieber's recent coif'd remnant has fetched a cool $40k in auction.  I too will be heading under the scissors in a day or so and since the bar has been set by the young Justin, I will set a reserve bid at say.. $20k per lock?  Let me know, bidding will open on Saturday.

Enough levity, he's a question for you.  What is the distinction between freedom fighting rebels in Egypt or Libya and 'Terrorist' labelled Freedom Fighting Tigers of Tamil Eelam in Sri Lanka?  It is just positive western press or is it simply a measure of the established government's popularity with the U.S.?  What will happen should the people of Saudi Arabia rise up against their royal masters in similar Egyptian style --remembering that the U.S. provides all forms of military aid and support for the ruling class in an effort to stabilize that nations supply of oil for the west, will those rebels be labelled Terrorist?
