Morning Thread

The Halifax Examiner. I especially liked this bit:

The city is finally getting around to fixing the Common pool and the adjacent Pavilion. Those facilities call back to an earlier time of promise, when there was the collective will to spend tax money to build nice things. Caring about kids, the future, and common purpose seems so retro nowadays. It’s good to see that someone on city staff still gives a shit.

Retro:  When tax dollars were spent on citizens, not on corporate give aways. It would be nice to get back to that.
