The man accused of injuring eight people in an apparently random mass stabbing at a West End apartment building last Thursday appeared briefly in court today... looking very much out of it.

Trayvon Martin, 17, shot dead for "just walking around, looking about." Gunman George Zimmerman, 28, a volunteer community watch captain, was “fixated on crime and focused on young, black males," neighbours say. He had called police 46 times since Jan. 1, 2011. Twenty one days since the fatal shooting, there have been no arrests or charges.

The crux: Racism isn't merely using "the N-word" or wearing blackface; it is the systemic and institutionalized treatment -- in the streets, in the workplace, in the legal justice system -- of racial minorities, like Troy Davis, like Trayvon Martin, like the countless people before and after them. America is nowhere close to being "post-racial."

A momentary distraction and an identity card hidden in a shoe was all Cuban women's soccer player Yisel Rodriguez needed in her bid to defect to the United States.

The company that provides aircraft maintenance to Air Canada shut its plants in three Canadian cities suddenly on Sunday, laying off up to 400 employees in Vancouver and around 2,700 nationally.

Was thrilled when Jim Green agreed to be part of The Gastown Project, which +Mark Yuen and I had been working on for months. The project launches this weekend. RIP to the best mayor Vancouver never had.
