The 9/11 Colouring Book

Politics and Crayolas

The 9/11 Colouring Book

There's a new colouring book out in the USA. Forget Dora or Thomas. Think Al-Qaeda. I kid you not.

The book focuses on the events of 9/11 as a tool for helping children understand the facts surrounding that historic day.

“We Shall Never Forget 9/11, The Kids’ Book of Freedom” by St. Louis publisher, Really Big Coloring Books, Inc (RBCB), "does not shy away from the truth".

According to RBCB's website, the book will show children "what happens to a terrorist who orders others to bomb our peace loving wonderful nation".

Wayne Bell, RBCB’s publisher, told Talking Points Memo the book is “a clean, honest read. It’s not degrading or anything like that.”

A portion of the book's proceeds will go to a pro-Israel charity.

Fans of "We Shall Never Forget 9/11" may also enjoy RBCB's other gem, last year’s "The Tea Party Coloring Book for Kids".

I wonder if Obama has pre-ordered his copy.

Shania Twain to Testify by Video

Stalker Don't Impress Her Much

Shania Twain to Testify by Video

Shania Twain is hoping to testify later this month against her stalker remotely rather than in person at Toronto's Old City Hall.

Originally from Timmins, the Canadian country music superstar who now lives in Switzerland would testify by video against stalker, Dr John Palumbo.

The 51-year-old Ottawa doctor was arrested in March after turning up at the Junos to meeting her, despite a restraining order banning him from coming within 500 metres of the singer.

Criminal harrassment charges against Palumbo were dismissed at last year's trial when Twain failed to show. It's obviously in her interests to state her case this time around.

In the past, Palumbo has sent Twain flowers, shown up at her cottage, and even her grandmother's funeral, justifying his actions on the basis that he and Twain "would be family one day".

Palumbo denies having a disorder despite a psychiatric assessment finding his obsession with Twain to be "of delusional intensity". While in custody, he told Star reporter Curtis Rush that he's simply waiting for Twain to deny his advances herself, rather than "through her handlers".

For a man so obsessed, Palumbo's pretty slow on the uptake.  Obviously his moves don't impress Shania much. Let's see if a jail sentence gets the message across that she's just not that into him...
