Well, well, well. Look who it is. Mr. Sun! Better late than never, I guess.

But all is not sunny in the newsroom today. The Virginia Tech massacre hits home as Montrealers learn that french teacher Jocelyne Couture-Nowak, originally from Montreal, was killed in the shooting. Dawson College students extend support and advice to students in Blacksburg, and Montreal police were not amused when two local teens from the CEGEP St-Laurent aimed paintball guns at the windows of the student residence as a prank.

The news gets even grislier with the discovery of a bag of body parts stuffed inside an SUV in a Rosemont alleyway.

Charest will announce his new minority-government cabinet this afternoon and it is expected he will choose a smaller cabinet than his last 26-minister line-up.

A Montreal woman, with the help of reproductivity researchers at McGill University, has frozen her own eggs in order to one day donate them to her daughter who was born with Turner's syndrome, which causes infertility. The decision is raising some serious ethical questions.

But if all you care to think about today is the long-awaited spring, enjoy these avian eccentricities as explained by the aptly-named local ornithologist David Bird.

Additionally, Today's Food Section will help drive away the news blues and put a spring in your step. A bright lentil salad or seafood feast might help tie you over until local spring veg start inundating our market stands. Pet owners concerned over the recent rash of pet food recalls might consider heading into the kitchen to whip up a delicious dinner for Fido. Still have time on your hands? Check out cheddarvision and enjoy the simple pleasures of watching a 44lb. wheel of Somerset cheddar age to moldy, tangy, buttery perfection. Fromage zen.
