With music download trends showing that the coveted male 18–24 demographic is more interested in the music of their ancestors than anything current, music store HMV is dropping CD prices on oldies like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

A former United Church minister is apologizing for officiating at the marriage ceremonies of at least 25 couples when she had no legal authority to do so. Rachel Margaret Montgomery-Heersink of Bancroft has been charged with several counts of unlawfully solemnizing a marriage and fraud under $5,000. The affected couples, who have actually been living in sin, will probably be killed by God.
