Signs and Wonders?
The extremely unusual is going on. And not all of it is Canadian.
- Example One: Hockey Night in Canada, the theme song of the weekly broadcast (entitled, as you may imagine, ‘Hockey Night in Canada’) from Canada’s public broadcaster is no longer licensed by said public broadcaster.
Ordinarily, these copyright-kinda things blow over, but this won’t; too many Canadians associate the song with the sport. Problematically — and probably why television network CTV bought the song’s rights in perpetuity — two generations of Canadians associate the song with CBC’s television and radio hockey broadcasts.
Is the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation going to take this lying down? Probably.
- Example two: Lynda Carter — the 1970s Amazon ‘Wonder Woman‘ to her friends — was canoeing on the Potomac when she sighted a floating body and had the presence of mind to enlist the aid of nearby fishermen in contacting authorities.
Ms Carter mentioned she didn’t have a cellphone, but doesn’t the invisible canoe have a powerful invisible communications system?
- Example three: Apple Inc. has taken their expensive iPhone and have
a) made it twice as fast, and
b) made it affordable(!).
No kidding. Check it out!
