Reports of TDPC's Death Are Greatly Exaggerated

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.
