. A great old friend is visiting, and enough old-timers were out at this one bar Friday night it was like a time warp had openened up – it was 1997 again. And then there’s the big event just down the highway and me not there. Wondering if friends are safe. At the bar last night a friend took a call from her boyfriend who’s inside the security perimeter – he called his girlfriend to say goodnight. Our three other friends (his colleagues) are outside the perimeter, but safe as well. It’s also the first no-jacket weekend here – beautiful warm weather. A good time to clean the windows and hose down my back deck, but also for coffee or beer on the sidewalk.
, sister weeklies here, have also consolidated their coverage of the Summit of the Americas, and added a place for people at the event to submit testimonials. The page is in French and English, which is refreshing (at least to me). I honestly don’t know much about Voir’s coverage, but both Stewart and current news editor MJ Milloy have written a lot about this stuff over the years in Hour. Disclosure – both are friends of mine.
Ed (who, appropriately enough, works as an ed) seems to think there’s a ball in the sky. Sheesh – what’s next?
long overdue talking with has suggested we get in touch using voice chat over the net. Good idea – but he suggested using MSN messenger or Yahoo messenger to do it. Trouble is, neither of these support voice chat for Macs. Anyone know what my options are?
