Don’t let the sun, or Frank Magazine, catch you crying...

Cape Breton Chit Chat

Can Dave Wilson rise again?

“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “You cannot possibly raise him, for he has been politically dead for six years...”
Then Jesus said, “Frig-off, out my way woman, did I not tell you that the dead man was scape-goated and has long paid for his sins?”

The stink in Point Tupper: another NSBI disgrace-in-waiting

Hate to say it, but there’s a bit of freeloading going on in Cape Breton. In Point Tupper, Cape Breton, to be exact.

Media Madness

Another legal opinion for Frank Magazine

The pointy-heads over at the Canadian Journalism Project’s website, J-Source.ca, have taken an interest in the publication ban-related nonsense in which I’ve found myself embroiled.

More snuggling time for Denyse! (unless she bolts for the competition...)

Frankland MLA expenses funtime!

While the politicos are away on summer vaycay, the accountants, reporters and expense-account-nerds will play.
Yes, it’s time once again to dive into the MLA expense reports, and see just how fast our elected officials can burn through our dough.

Speaker's Corner

Campaign sign spinning

Just because noted Kentville folk artist Dennis Ramsay has removed the hand-painted sign from his front yard supporting local B&B owner Sandra Snow’s bid to topple incumbent Mayor Dave Corkum in October, that doesn’t mean he’s withdrawn his support for her.

Welcome to Kentville, Florida...

Wanker of the Week: Heartless homecare bureaucrats

Remember those chest-thumping headlines that featured Health Minister Leo Glavine, along with provincial bureaucrats and the VON, boasting about how successful they’ve been in cutting waitlists for homecare as of late?
