Heroes update: "Homecoming", "Save the Cheerleader, Save the World, Save the Cheerleader, Save the World." Damn I was getting sick of the commercials. Did you find out Why? No!, But was it worth watching, YES! Take a read of the the Wiki Episode review, or read discussions on the show at 9th Wonders, they can write better than I can.

We get to see how Sylar harvests the skull/brain, though he can make mistakes- he killed the other Cheerleader thinking its Claire, so his only power seems to be telekinesis with nothing else. I had thought that he was harvesting the powers of the "heroes" that he killed. Just to let you know Peter and Claire live, how can Peter die when he can access Claires power of regeneration. The last word between them is
Peter - "Did I save the world", Claire - "No I'm just a Cheerleader",
Damn with the all the lead up to they leave us with that! We will have to see in the future what the importance of Peter saving Claire was?
Hiro is still lost in time - Next week we will find out what's happening? Oh shit I forgot we get to go back in time six months. Arg!! What a great show.

I was listening to CIUT last Friday night, they were interviewing a ex US solider who has come to Canada to avoid being sent to Iraq. He had already done two tours of duty in Afghanistan, he was a army ranger, had already been discharged from the army, but was being forced back in because of a clause that the US Army has about recent discharges. It all seemed just wrong. Okay when I was a kid the US media called them deserters, Canadian media back in the 70's called them conscientious objectors. They came to Canada so that they could avoid the draft and being sent to Vietnam. Once again they are coming here to avoid being sent, but this time these are solders who volunteered to serve their country who are coming here, not college students who are trying to avoid the draft. These are men and maybe women who are objecting to being sent to a war that they don't agree with. Is this wrong, I don't have a answer but I don't think they should have to fight for somthing you don't believe in. Should we as Canadians harbour them, yes. But, where are Canadian conscientious objectors running to? I hope some country out there is helping them out.

Dead Kennedys lyrics for "Holiday in Cambodia"
So you been to school for a year or two
And you know you've seen it all
In daddy's car thinkin' you'll go far
Back east your type don't crawl
Play ethnicky jazz to parade your snazz
On your five grand stereo
Braggin that you know how the niggers feel cold
And the slums got so much soul

It's time to taste what you most fear
Right Guard will not help you here
Brace yourself, my dear

It's a holiday in Cambodia
It's tough kid, but it's life
It's a holiday in Cambodia
Don't forget to pack a wife

Your a star-belly sneech you suck like a leech
You want everyone to act like you
Kiss ass while you b*tch so you can get rich
But your boss gets richer on you
Well you'll work harder with a gun in your back
For a bowl of rice a day
Slave for soldiers til you starve
Then your head skewered on a stake
Now you can go where people are one
Now you can go where they get things done
What you need my son:

Is a holiday in Cambodia
Where people dress in black
A holiday in Cambodia
Where you'll kiss ass or crack

Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot [etc.]

And it's a holiday in Cambodia
Where you'll do what you're told
A holiday in Cambodia
Where the slums got so much soul

I Fought the Law (and I Won)
Drinkin' beer in the hot sun
I fought the law and I won

I needed sex and I got mine
I fought the law and I won

The law don't mean sh*t if you've got the right friends
That's how the country's run
Twinkies are the best friend I've ever had
I fought the law
And I won

I blew George & Harvey's brains out with my six-gun
I fought the law and I won

Gonna write my book and make a million
I fought the law and I won

I'm the new folk hero of the Ku Klux Klan
My cop friends think that's fine
You can get away with murder if you've got a badge
I fought the law
And I won
I am the law
So I won
