Big upset at the Kentucky Derby today, both in terms of the horse hailing from Canada and being a gelding. (MSN) Of course, it was a muddy track, and two of the favourites had previously withdrawn (MSN)

Saturday Morning Cartoon: Nerd Special

Guess what movie opens next week? Huh? Huh? Are you excited? Are you as excited as I am?

Here's a Saturday morning cartoon hint:

Star Trek: The Animated Series debuted in 1973, four years after NBC prematurely cancelled the U.S.S. Enterprise's original five year mission. It's most noteworthy for two things: one, it was produced by Dorothy Fontana, the script editor for the original series, and she brought in writing talent like David Gerrold, who wrote a sequel to his classic episode, The Trouble With Tribbles. Second, and this is just something you wouldn't see these days, nearly all of the original voice talent returned for this. Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols, James Doohan and of course the mighty William Shatner all boldly went were no cartoon had gone before. These shows are available on DVD and are essential watching for Star Trek nerds and cartoon fans, and worth a look by a broader audience.

Okay, we're going to need another clip here. Beam me back, Scotty!

Rosie's first ever top six in the A.M.

1. The Quebec jail system isn't that good a place for a convict with the nickname of The Flower (Globe and Mail).

2. Mosaic Stadium. At Christmas. For a hockey game or a possible double-header. (Mitchell Blair) What could possibly go wrong?

3. Solidarity forever ... or why Fox News is trying to bury the story of the U.S. Navy SEALS rescuing Capt. Richard Phillips. (Crooks and Liars)

4. Kevin Smith's newest movie project sounds as if he's doing a documentary on the next Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce meeting. (IMDB)

5. Okay, Murray, Brad Wall is likeable. Calvert was likeable too. And compared to Stephen Harper, Montgomery Burns is the King of Kensington. Being likeable didn't make Calvert a good premier, so why does the L-P's chief (read: only) political columnist think this trait makes Wall a Man of The People? (Regina Leader-Post)

6. I didn't know my blog posts (prairie dog) had such an effect on Don Morgan, arguably the most incompetent minister in Wall's cabinet (CBC Saskatchewan).
