Cape Breton Chit Chat

Golf, er, beach, anyone...?

It’s a little victory for the little guys of Cape Breton in their battle against the 1%ers.

Where have you gone News 95.7, a baseball fan turns his lonely ears to you...

Mr. Rogers has gone all radio silent on me.

Mind your step!

It’s hard to imagine a more startling mishap than falling into a hole in a cemetery.
That’s what Halifax woman Bernice Higgins-Carter says happened to her when she was visiting her dad’s grave in the Gates of Heaven Cemetery on Old Sackville Road in Sackville.

The Greg Cox Travelling Inebriation Show comes home

Wanker of the Week alumnus Greg Cox is back in town after his adventure across the pond (Frank 771).
On the lam from Halifax Regional Police for the last few months, he turned himself in to a patrol officer on Quinpool Road on Wednesday, July 12.

AGNS and its Leibovitz Archive...

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia exhibiting a truckload of prints from a celebrity-obsessed American fashion photographer makes about as much sense as giving a chimpanzee a box of Kotex.
