    Rick Mercer's "rants" are usually of a more comic & satrical bent. But in the wake of the suicide of Jamie Hubley, yet another teenager who was bullied because he was gay, Mercer's rant this week took a decidedly more serious turn.

    There was also a follow-up interview with him on CBC Radio's "The Current" -- the streaming audio for this one is likely geoblocked outside of Canada though.

    Good for Rick; he is fabulous. His book is also a great read.
