Unmoored, enmired, and un-mayored. Montreal awoke this morning to the news that Mayor Michael Applebaum -- who'd sworn to sweep the city clean of corruption -- had himself by swept up by police.
The Applebaum dumping gang. We'll hear from a journalist who's been tracking corruption in Quebec -- and a city councillor who'll tell us what the mayor's arrest means to Montreal's municipal government.
Moderately surprising. Cleric Hasan Rowhani wins the Iranian election with more than fifty per cent of the vote -- and reformists are cautiously optimistic about what his leadership could mean.

The Oxford English Dictionary announces a slate of new definitions -- including entries for "tweet", and "geekery", and a phrase that will make you wince if you've ever seen it: "dad dancing".As It Happens, the Monday edition. Radio that knows dad dancing can leave both the dancer and his children badly shaken.
