Some people have emailed me privately, and one has commented, that things seem pretty dead around here. In particular I've been asked about the Montague Township by-election for Deputy Reeve and why I haven't gone back to the days when this blog was most 'alive'. If by 'alive' we mean incendiary.
So... here are some quick answers:
1. Dead? No, just sleeping. I have a new job which is keeping me busy, so posting is more occasional, that's all. Sitemeter tells me people do still stop by and a lot of Google-driven traffic shows up even when I don't post, so all is not lost.
2. Montague? I'm staying out of it, as my way of contributing to reconciliation and healing in the township. I like to think I am making a contribution on the Economic Development Committee. However, I will say that I like the electronic voting approach, and that I think we have a very strong slate of candidates to pick from. With one exception, I'd be reasonably happy whoever wins.
