Interestingly I don't even think about whether or not you're disseminating any information during the hour I spend listening to you each week.
It's like having a beer or a coffee with a friend, you don't really expect anything, you just like spending time with them.
If I want information there's always the CBC.

2 points with the lady and the niqab in court.

1. Do not accused have the right to face their accuser? (take that how you like)
2. How do we know that it IS the accuser. It would be hard to tell from a pair of eyes only.
So it's a matter of verifiable identity I guess.

rock on.

Thanks so much for this and all your other comments Bunky - and yes, yours was the name I couldn't come up with on the spur of the(seniors) moment when I was talking about punishing the bad guys a few episodes back. I really like your observation - its not about facts but just sharing time - thank you! That's how it feels on my end too.

With regards to the niqab, for sure the starting point is proper identification - but probably many ways to certify she is who she's supposed to be.

Dude, you had it right. Glenn Hall was the goalie for the Hawks in '61. He was in the middle of his 502 consecutive complete game streak - one of those few sports records that probably won't ever be broken.

Just wanted to chime in and offer some support re: your approach to going vegetarian. As someone making the same changes, I think it is important to retain one's ability to make decisions, and not be bound to extreme change.

We need to accept that we can make positive changes to our lives gradually without having to go to extremes. Requiring 100% change sets the bar too high, sets ourselves up for failure, and almost ensures that we will give up on trying to change entirely.

If we all stuck to our goals and got only half way there, the world would still be a far better place!
