I know it’s hard out there now, people living of soup crackers and ketchup packages. I’ve been there too, day to day. Wondering if I wouldn’t put a knife to my throat cause I didn’t have gas in the tank or a hope for a place to sleep.
It’s hard for all the working folk out there that have been abandoned. I happen to work for one of those mega corps. I don’t build bombers or death planes. But the guys that pay my rent do.
It’s hard for me, one that’s been in your shoes. To just sit and do nothing, I give what I can. But that’s local.
For the rest of you please enjoy. Bruce and Tom.

Happy Father’s Day Everyone.
First things first, let me add my voice to the growing throng who are pissed off as all hell at what happened in Vancouver this week. To my mind it was a perfect storm of emotion and alcohol fuelled mayhem that only needed a spark to explode. I believe that at the heart of the Vancouver riot there was a core element that was not there to celebrate game 7.
Who in their right mind shows up to a street party with a baseball bat or Molotov cocktail? This was not a riot based on the win or the loss of a hockey game in my opinion. This was a deliberate act by a core group of hateful people who were determined to twist the drunken emotion of a hopeful crowd into a violent orgy of hate. Mission accomplished. I hope you were stupid enough to get your picture taken by one of the hundreds of cameras present at the event.

May you feel the hot breath of your new butch cellmate on the nape of your neck as he introduces you to life in jail! Bitch.
