Late Warning of An Interesting Event

April 25, 2019

Tonight — yes, Thursday, this very night — at the People’s Co-op Bookstore at 1391 Commercial there will be an interesting discussion at the first ever People’s Book Club.  As per their mailing:


Our first book is In Defense of Housing, by David Madden and Peter Marcuse.  Derrick O’Keefe will introduce the event, and do his best to wrangle the ensuing discussion.

In Defense of Housing is available at the People’s Co-op for (cough, cough) $35.99, but by saying the magic words “See you on April 25 at the People’s Book Club!” you automatically qualify for a 20% discount.

Things get under way at 7:30 :: Admission is free.


Should be fun!  Apologies for the late warning.

Happy Birthday Dad!

April 25, 2019


Today my father would have been 92 years old.  He has been gone almost 20 years now, but I seem to speak with him more often these days than I ever did when he was alive.  He was a wonderful man and, I now recognize, a marvellously supportive parent; an attribute that I was too dumb to notice far too often when I was younger.
