I don’t know if it’s the summer heat or what but there seemed to be too much national news this past week and not enough local news. When I was on the hunt for stories one night, I came across news about a cyclist in Caledon, Ontario who was fied $180 for going through a stop sign,
This is what passed for news this past week.
I guess it was notable — the guy was going fast. But Caledon is less of a town and more of a bunch of back roads that people cycle on. So it wasn’t news to me that a cyclist would go through a stop sign. Needless to say, it wasn’t included in this week’s podcast.
If you listened to the episode this morning, you’ll know that I have auto reply on my emails and I’m about to take off. I’ll write something about that to land sometime next week in your inboxes. But I’ll be out of here on Sunday and it will kick off a month of travel — I’ll be heading to two countries, three cities and one cottage. I’m looking forward to some time off, though not the mental torment that comes with time off. I think too much about philosophy when I’m on holiday.
