Cat is top dog

As readers of this blog will know, when it comes to reliable news sources, I’ve found that (amongst others!) neither the CBC nor AP has a record that warrants such commendation. But every once in a while, they do produce a story deserving of mention and merit! For example, a few days ago, CBC reported…

The windmills of my mind

Of equal interest, IMHO, is dennisambler’s comment in which he highlights some of Betts’ earlier history. I disagree with much of what the environmental movement do – I disagree with them…
