The Locals Vote "No"
I am, admittedly, surprised and pleased that my neighbors voted down a series of three 'sanctuary city' proposals in yesterday's local election. This after much intense public debate. But perhaps I should not feel surprised, because a town like Peterborough...

Life Among the "Children"
I start every morning with two things:  Spending some time with my various 'arts' and catching up with the fast-increasing, world-wide, insanity of the day. That the first of these is a source of total, spirit-lifting, joy and the second not too different f...
