Word on the Street: Moving on

Word on the Street: Moving on

I have to admit, the Covid ‘vacation’ has made me reexamine the way we do things, as families and as a community and a society. I’m an observer. I watch and listen and learn about how each of us work, as individuals. Sometimes, when the rum is flowing, someone tells a hilarious but embarrassing story […]

Word on the Street: The Great Realization

Word on the Street: The Great Realization

OK class … there’s a new teacher in the room. I’d like you to listen to what he has to teach us. This is Mr. Covid, and he is about to teach us all about our past and our future. Before we continue, I would like you all to watch a brief video called The […]

Word on the Street: It’s a Whole New World?

Word on the Street: It’s a Whole New World?

I’m about to explore a New World. A world post-COVID-19. We’ve all seen our lives change. Suddenly. And for way, way too long. Most of us have learned some new lessons – lessons which can only be learned through crisis: Wars, Great Depression, loss of friends and family. I’ll start with a rather weird story, […]

Word on the Street: The New Abnormal

Word on the Street: The New Abnormal

I have to say, County people have responded well to the coronavirus pandemic. Keeping a six-foot distance is clearly marked on the floor of the LCBO, which, thank God, is one of the few places open. And, if you’re going to have a pandemic, and isolate yourself from the world, you need only two things: […]

Word on the Street: Province of the County Forever

Word on the Street: Province of the County Forever

I thought I was done with column writing for a bit, since I have several other projects to deal with, but I’m going to give it one last kick at the can before I leave for a while. Following my column on leaving Ontario and setting up our own Province of Prince Edward County, Lynn […]

Caution is good; panic is not the Canadian way

Caution is good; panic is not the Canadian way

Okay, I know the corona virus is throwing the whole world into a tailspin, but something very strange – something very un-Canadian – seems to be happening. I know it’s serious, because every time a fast-spreading virus occurs, it eventually acquires a scientific name. This time it’s COVID-19, which makes me wonder how the previous […]

Word on the Street: Steve goes insane... again

Word on the Street: Steve goes insane… again

If you’ve read the last three columns, you can probably sense a theme. Being a municipality relegated to being a tiny baby-drooling, diaper-filling, hand-me-down, constantly-crying, pleading and begging pathetic creature … sucks. The real power is in the parental house: the Feds and the Province. Most of us, not including me, eventually grow up. They […]

Word on the Street: Ready to consult

Word on the Street: Ready to consult

In an earlier column, I gave County Council a passing grade on decision-making, bound as they are by the Municipal Act. The Act, should you decide to read it and then kill yourself, is a wide selection of arbitrary rules, conjured up by a pile of lawyers and politicians armed with paranoia, worst-condition thinking and […]

Word on the Street: The psychology of change

Word on the Street: The psychology of change

I covered a lot of territory in the last column, but now I’d like to cut into the County Brain and pull out all those ugly demons that lurk in the corners of your mind. I am not a certified behavioural psychologist, but I watch people, study people and listen to people, and have determined […]

Word on the Street: A Matter of Distraction

Word on the Street: A Matter of Distraction

I know I’ve been gone a long time, but I’ve been busy. Every once in a while I run across things that make the previously empty parts of my brain start to ponder. It’s like when you start a weedeater, and realize that the gas is 10 years old, and it takes 150 pulls on […]
