If anyone has noticed the soaring share price of Priceline.com, it’s an easy bet that Canadian actor William Shatner had something to do with it.
It's soaring because he's Canadian!
So this is an article in the Toronto Sun -- I'm assuming a B league paper, I believe the Star is the main daily -- writing a story about Shatner shilling for Priceline. And it's [only] news because he's Canadian. Seriously, Canada, you don't have to stoop to this. You're a great country. You're one of our favorite border states countries.
