Dear Saskatoon city and Transit: please make up and be friends again…

Violence and women and sports stars
I don’t care about world politics and I don’t care much about sports either. War over borders or war over stupid metal trophies — it’s all a bunch of posturing and elitism and people getting hurt. Often civilians. Take this … Continue reading

I wonder how effective “Don’t Say the Pledge” will be.
Being Canadian, I can’t quote any part of the Pledge of Allegiance without looking it up. (Thanks, Wikipedia, for the rundown of how many times the Pledge has changed over the years, and when.) On Monday, Sept. 8th, the American … Continue reading

What part of the bible is worth following letter for letter?
