Picks and Pans

Lorraine, gently dusting off her soapbox and dragging it into the blog...
Yay for librarians! The province is finally starting to put some $ back into these invaluable resources. We need librarians. Full time. We need open libraries where our kids can go and work, and learn how to research, and explore, and discover a world beyond gameboys and schoolyard bullying.

Of Local Interest Only
The Burlington mayoral race is wide open. Here's a clue: Whoever stops the opening of WalMart in my downtown (yeah, my downtown, too bad) will get my vote. Not needed, not wanted, not smart. And no, I can't afford to shop in our pretty little core. But I'll be damned if I'll support the slash and burn politics of WalMart.

Hells Bells
The craziness in the pastoral rural community to our left makes a timely intro to my plug for a great new book. Fallen Angel, an expose on the Hells Angels, has been written and released by my buddy Jerry Langton. Find it, buy it, read it. And all the while picture drinking too much wine with this lad around your dining room table. Jer, not the biker dude.

Thanks for the kind words Ro-Laine, but I can't wait for the collected thoughts of the Mother of All Mothers to knock it off the shelves. And I'd like too much wine soon, please.
