i enjoy watching how everyone on facebook changes their profile pictures with the seasons. now that school is starting the summer trend of showing a lot of skin is over, and fall brings a new image for the centimeter-and-a-bit image facebook allots each for their icon.

As same-sex marriage slowly spreads across the United States, an online petition asking Sesame Street to have Bert and Ernie get married is gaining steam. Personally, I’m not convinced the duo needs to get married to confirm their love. And I shudder to think of Oscar the Grouch at the wedding.
Stephen Harper’s free trade agreement with Colombia is being criticized by human rights advocates. Harper says critics are trade “protectionists” using human rights as an excuse to scuttle the agreement. Apparently, to Harper, that includes Amnesty International. Meanwhile, his talks with Honduras are also being criticised.
And Britain – now turned into a virtual armed camp – remained quiet for a second night, although some disturbances have now begun in Wales. British PM David Cameron vowed reprisals. “We needed a fight-back and a fight-back is under way,” he said. Way to calm everybody down, Dave.
The US National Park Service has announced that it will be closing the Statue of Liberty for a year for $27 million worth of renovations. Now if that isn’t symbolic, I don’t know what is.
Hundreds of rebel fighters pushed into the centre of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, late on Sunday as their battle to overthrow the 42-year rule of Muammar Gaddafi moved closer to ending in victory.
The prosecutor of the international criminal court said one of Gaddafi’s sons, Saif al-Islam, who has been indicted along with his father on crimes against humanity charges had been detained.
There were also reports that Gaddafi’s eldest son, Mohammed, and the presidential guard had surrendered but Gaddafi’s Bab al-Aziziya compound was still under the control of the regime.
In an attempt to try to avoid a heavy battle in the city centre, Abd el-Jalil said the rebel fighters would halt their offensive if Gaddafi announced his departure, adding that they would give Gaddafi and his sons safe passage out of the country.
Libya’s dictator vowed that he would not be forced into exile. “We will fight to the last drop of blood,” he said. “We will never give up.”
