Rolling Stones et alia

The CBC is running a Windows Media Player only live broadcast of today's concert. (See also their main Toronto Rocks page) Evidently the CN Tower will be all lit up from 9:30 in honor of the event. Evidently the attendance is forecast to be in the range of Woodstock or slightly larger.

Right now they're discussing the related "Beef without Borders" half-mile of barbecue at the events - the aftermath of that case of madcow which was found in Alberta a few months ago, causing several countries to ban Canadian beef.

I read a suggestion in the letters page of a newspaper that said that they should get Mick Jagger to publicly eat some Canadian beef, thus killing two birds with one Stone....:o)

Amusing! For all I know they did - I didn't see the full concert broadcast. Dan Ackroyd ate Canadian beef on stage though. Not really the same thing.

Tangential irony - apparently the one infected cow found in Canada several months back came from the U.S.
