I flip out about the downtown partnership forum on pan-handling I went to last night, and then calm down a bit.

I am beginning to think it’s true what the rest of the world says about Americans. We’ve become a nation of inveterate cry-babies. The quickness with which people seem to be leaping to legislate away behaviour that offends or scares them is truly frightening. I may have more to say about this when I have more free time.

(Get it? PANdemic?)
