Late news today, due to my need to party down. Happy birthday Narelle!

Quote of the Day:

If marijuana were a new discovery rather than a well-known substance carrying cultural and political baggage, it would be hailed as a wonder drug.

Lester Grinspoon

  1. but Captain Canuck lives on!

    Up here in the Northlands we did have our own flag-draped hero, and no it wasn’t a Quadrophenial Pete Townsend on loan from The Who, but the great maple-leaf’d avenger of trade treaties and protector of can-con Captain Canuck who, being Canadian, worked naturally as a paid agent for the Federal Government (sorry, no freelance vigilantees: we’re Canadian!) and probably looked forward to his cushy pension, and while his cross-border counterpart was off starting inter-galactic Leagues of This and That, our hero did did real important Canadian Security Stuff like protecting our fisheries from evil american salmon or helping to negotiate pulp-wood tariffs …

    … or something like that. It was a long time ago, and the 70’s were a long time ago, eh? But the point still being that I don’t remember anyone with messed pants, but I do remember it worth a few howls from the floor after a few beers.

    But far from felled by some foul felon’s snipe, our Captain is alive and well and aparently reborn in a new set of issues gathering dust in better comics stores everywhere along Queen West in Toronto between McCaul and Spadina … on the south side! So here’s back at ya Cap’t Yank, the fast glamour life will get you in the end, and sometimes the dull nice guys do finish last!

    Adventure … Action … Obscurity!
