Since I’ve been away from this particular cyber space Prince Edward County, Ontario council allowed the demolition of a 135+ year old heritage building on Main St. Picton, Ottawa City council voted for the ploughing under of a city park and erecting 20 storey Bank St. Twin Towers, “Dr.” Theodor Seuss Geisel had a birthday, John Lennon turned 70, Julian Lennon hugged Yoko and President Obama has now become as popular as George Bush ll. I await the resurrection of Chief Seattle and for him to become the first American President of the republic. It’ll be just like starting over. (Everybody Knows).
for speaking words of wisdom we sing let it be.
I am not pleased with the way we are treating some of our older heritage buildings.
Despite a publicly stated (on Prince Edward County, Ontario website) policy of being devoted to the protection of heritage on Main St. Picton, and against the recommendation of PEC heritage advisors, the majority of PEC council voted to allow demolition of a 135+ year old heritage building on Main St. Picton, Ontario. The manner in which this occurred made national television as a worker narrowly escaped being buried in the rubble when a wall collapsed while he was in the tower.
A local added the middle text, “Home Of The Wrecking Ball',” to the road sign for Picton, Ontario when news of the demolition spread.
CBC TV national news report of church demolition with worker inside.
Note; the worker was safe and well afterward
YouTube video of the collapse
See it reported on CKWS Television http://www.ckwstv.com/index.cfm?page=news&id=3200
The demolition (They Tore Down The Church On Sunday) was at first carried out without proper safety protections by one already convicted of serious environmental pollution crimes in the area.
“THIS WOULDN'T BE THE FIRST TIME CHARGES HAVE BEEN LAID AGAINST THE OWNER OF GREEN RECYCLING- JIM SINCLAIR.
--IN 2008 HE WAS FINED OVER 650,000 DOLLARS AND SPENT FOUR MONTHS BEHIND BARS FOR VIOLATING THE ONTARIO WATER RESOURCES ACT WHEN HE DEMOLISHED THE FORMER BAKELITE PLANT IN BELLEVILLE. " - CKWS
It should be noted that among other things this Sinclair was convicted for polluting the waterways with PCB laden soil. He is the man at the controls of the high hoe. Most guilty of lack of vision is the PEC council who allowed this to happen.

Is there anyone who can say they are not a little bit cracked?
After all, that's how the light gets in (thanks Leo) .
Cracked, a little bit bent, rusted and twisted, that's the humanity . . . Imagine.

I posted this video for John Lennon’s 70th. It is a recording of Imagine which I sang with Big Soul Project Choir and Band on December 8, 2007. There are notes with the video so I am not going to write more here.
