I’ll bet lots of you are familiar with gambling… and horse racing. Well, we aren’t. Sure we’ve been to Las Vegas where I glued myself to the 25 cent slot machines.

This morning the conversation was about Chow and Ford and the Mayoralty race. “Chow is going …
The municipal election is scheduled for October 27 – four months away. Enough time to think, to research, to ask questions, to make a decision, to change your mind, whatever.
