Road trip

The nice thing about writing a column for a paper is getting to chew on a topic once or twice. It works for me. Since it’s half-past July already, I’m here to ask you to raise your hand if you’ve visited all of our local community museums. I’m thinking a road trip is in order.…

Kindness of strangers

The notion of the Good Samaritan has fallen out of popular discourse, like the citizen’s arrest, or Boy Scouts who help people cross the road. It’s become a trope—a character in a Bugs Bunny cartoon.

A rattle-sound from my bike is about all that seems to ground me as I travel the rugged quiet of Closson Road. Red-winged blackbirds and four cranky crows tell of news—something maybe I oughta know? Something in the back-fields? Deer…

Separation: some serious thoughts

Okay, the time has come. I have previously launched the idea of separating the County from Canada, largely as a gesture to embarrass the federal and provincial governments, and had some fun in the process. As Pat Larkin said: “We…
