Broken Promises

This is what Joe Fontana said on the campaign trail in 2010 about his election promise of zero tax increases for all four years if he was elected Mayor - "In all my 28 years of public life, I have never, ever, ever promised anything I couldn't deliver." ... Well, that's one election promise now broken. ... As for his other promise - Joe, you only have a year and a half left to bring those 10,000 new jobs to London.

Mayor Joe's Lie of the Day

After publicly claiming in the press that originally he was only meeting fellow Fontana 8 member City Councillor Steve Orser at Billy T's Bar and Grill for coffee this past Saturday to discuss the future of an abandoned cookie manufacturing plant and then decided to ask councillors Joe Swan and Dale Henderson to join them for a burger and talk about figure skating - it turns out that according to the manager of 'Billy T's', Mayor Joe had already booked a PRIVATE ROOM for them and three of their other co-conspirators - coincidently just a few days before the municipal budget vote. ... CAUGHT IN A LIE AGAIN. ... Boy, talk about pulling a boner. Again.

Hello again. Hello

A lot of you have written in lately asking how the yodel was born. Sadly, I have no idea. But I suspect it originated anywhere where solitary males spend too much time on mountaintops with goats or on the prairies watching over sleeping cattle. Some of you have written in to ask why my last post was almost a year ago. Well, the easy answer is that I'm fueding with 'Blooger' over why all of my posts in the past year have no paragraphs or separation of same - contrary to how it looks on my preview page. ... If I wanted to write like Jack Kerouac in one long unbroken paragraph I would write like Jack Kerouac in one long unbroken paragraph. ... so until my lawyers get this issue resolved - inbetween filing injunctions on that Springbank Dam thing - my intention is to keep this blog alive (albeit in the most lame-ass way possible,) with a Photo of the Week. ... this one is captioned 'Hello'. The title says it all. Source? I forget. Somewhere on the internet tho. ... till next week - give or take six days or so.

"Paging Mister Burton. Mr. Burton to the Front-desk please."

Now that Hollywood has explored all there is to the 'darkness' that is the Dark Knight, with the next reinvention of this franchise, let's get back to having some fun. ... One of the best times I've had in a movie-theatre was a couple of years ago at a late-night screening of the Adam West/Burt Ward 'Batman' from 1966. Just as much fun as when I took first-born toddler to see it as a Saturday matinee a quarter of a century ago. ... Growing up, Batman and Superman comics were my introduction to reading as a kid in the very early 1960s. In those days, Batman wasn't moping about comtemplating that doppleganger thing and being all dark and all with barely smouldering rage. ... Nope, he and Robin were time-travelling and visiting other planets - fighting crime and kicking alien and prehistoric ass. Now, THAT was adventure! ... Tim Burton, this is your cue. Time to get back to work. If ever we needed you, we need you NOW!
