  • No other artist is as exciting live as MARGOT MacDONALD. This is going to be an amazing show. I can’t wait!

        What about a PROPER SLICE?

    • Garden City

      Mulberry trees. Yuck. Nasty things. And mulberries don’t have any flavour.

      • CW

        It’s because these trees are in the U.S.A. They have “flavor” instead. You need to go to the UK/NZ/AUS/CA to get what you’re looking for. Cheers.

  • Cynic

    I’m sure a PSA over the loudspeaker will deter any would-be sexual assaulters.[Insert eye-rolling smiley icon here.]

  • Acknowledgment

    Kudos for acknowledging that sexual harrassment is a problem, (this means you, sleazoids that think putting your hands on a stranger is ok, or that it’s funny to see someone be harrassed). Raising awareness may help curb sexual harrassment, it may not. But doing/saying nothing certainly does not work.

    Looking forward to hearing Reese say “Fill me up, Mr McCalister”

    Re Buckingham project, the County cannot legally own housing but did so until it ‘transferred’ the units, and still owns the land. Sounds like it is a violation of law here. Any lawyers care to weigh in?

  • Just Wondering

    Every once in a while when I’m on the Metro, I notice an attractive female and I take a quick glance. Is this sexual harassment? Do I risk being arrested for this?
