Premier Dalton McGuinty has finally stepped up to the plate
Dalton McGuinty tells Catholic church he’s in charge of schoolswww.thestar.comThe provincial government — not the Catholic church — is the higher power when it comes to running Ontario schools, says Premier Dalton McGuinty.
but will he be the man who finally knocks that catholic school bunt right out of the park?
notice how quickly chicken little Tim Hudak wants to toe the line? Bravo Mr. McGuinty~ so far, so good!

With the Pope now blaming his Butler ~ and the Church scrambling to explain how they do not HATE,  and actually saying words like "Gay" - (which is a 'brand' just like "NDP" or "PC") and "Homophobia" out loud and repeating them is just a "rhetorical sledgehammer"   Toronto's own Archbishop Cardinal (apparently he is both?) "Corny" Collins has been sounding off everywhere on radio and print media coming up with pearls of wisdom like this but even the stodgy old Globe & Mail know when it's time desert a sinking ship (Just ask Jan Wong!) ask evidenced by the lukewarm suport shown here:

 hopefully CC Collins will end up in a lovely John Waters film someday like his namesake.

Here's a brilliant response to Cardinal Collins Homophobic death rattles as heard on our airwaves and seen in the press these last few days from CSA's Leslie Rosenblood

new blog same as the old blog?

*tumblr, wordPress, blogspot...

i'm everywhere! Had planned to use WP just to revamp my "official" site, adding a mailorder cart system and archives for art projects in music, video, 

print eBooks in digital and physical media formats... but after taking just a brief look at WordPress I'm very surprised at how robust the "blog" element is!  Should I pick and choose between hosts and transfer files to one or use them all at the same time? 

In addition to the forthcoming release of "NOTHING WILL HURT" my new CD with bill bissett, and "Big Boy Essence" a brand new comic art and poetry book,

I'm especially excited about digging into the back catalog of rare and out-of-print Casual Casual  and getting it better represented online now that I'm up and running with all the new software.  Stay tuned for more it comes in!


here's the initial WP blogs right here on blogspot*

Hello world! from

WordPress is installed ~ I got my stolen domain name back and hopefully this goofy .gif version of the flash animation will work… unfortunately, it’s still not working here on the Mac in this instance anyway unfortunately . Tomorrow I will dig in and see if I can convert them all into better looking formats that actually work on all machines and  iOS devices perhaps with html5. Then thursday it’s on to the Arizona desert where this website will take you through a portal,  by way of the Solar Eclipse.  Onward and upward!
Special thanks to Jim Munroe at No Media Kings for hosting and helping me see to it that is up and running again! Stay tuned for breaking news as it comes in…

Home is where the heart is…
Meet the old Blog… same as the new Blog
No Ticky ~ No Laundry
YAY! I got .swf conversion going out of Flash into a javascript version – but now what? Boring! CLICK ~ save it for the airplane ride? ~ Now I must make sure my laundry’s done, packing list packed, passport’s ready & ticket printed  ~
Mr. Pete is Arizona bound!
