It's been a Bad Week for...

Lise Thibault

Quebec's former lieutenant-governor. Thibault, 73, was ordered to stand trial on six criminal fraud charges. The Queen's former representative is accused of making $700,000 in improper expense claims. A report by former auditor general Sheila Fraser said the claims include golf and ski lessons, as well as transporting specially adapted golf carts from Quebec to Florida. Thibault has declared her innocence.

Quebec Premier Jean Charest

His showdown with striking university students led him to blink, not once but several times. The strike, now in its 12th week, came after a proposed $1,625 increase in tuition. Charest offered to stretch the increase over seven years, up from the proposed five. The students voted to reject his offer. Now he's stuck with a bunch of angry sociology majors who believe skipping classes will teach The Man a real lesson.

Maxwell Drew Johnson

She's only a few days old but little Maxwell lost the genetic lottery. Mommy is Jessica ("Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it says 'Chicken by the Sea.'") Simpson. Maxwell's mom is a survivor who went from short shorts to mom jeans to her own clothing line but let's hope there's a nanny on call. "Is it a baby or an accessory? Can I keep her in my purse?"
