I’ve always appreciated the work of veteran CBC reporter Stephen Puddicombe. I don’t know if that sentiment is necessarily reciprocal. I wouldn’t think so.

Frightful news, sir, just frightful. I’m afraid we’ve lost her. Yes, our very favourite country gal, Denyse Sibley, has gone all rock & roll on us.
A longtime fixture at Halifax radio station CHFX 101.9, Denyse has moved up the FM dial from “Today’s Country” to The Wave 89.9, “Halifax’s Greatest Hits.”
A new building and a fresh stock of books apparently wasn’t enough to get the idea that the big glass building on Spring Garden is open for business in the 21st century, so it’s time yet again to roll out a big ol’ rebranding campaign for the Halifax Public Library.
In my last column (Frank 759), I wrote about a trip to Europe in 1971 and how easy it was at that time to transport almost anything — including an unexploded artillery shell retrieved from the battlefield at Vimy Ridge — from one country to another by coach, rail, ferry, and/or aircraft.
“Reporters should certainly use their judgement when dealing with potentially traumatized individuals to ensure an interviewee understands the implications of the interview... ‘What are you thinking?’ may not be the most elegant question in journalism.”
