I continue to think about Fully-Funded Public Transit . If you can come up with a rational objection, please email me .

Here we go again. I rode the Bloor train on Monday; nastily hot, but not, as Bianca Spence claims (her quote is obliterated by my date-stamp) “hard to breathe”.

Unless you already have respiratory problems and are taking the subway because walking takes your breath away.

In this clip, Mayor John Tory is quoted as saying that the Toronto Transit Commission accelerate repairs while trimming its budget. Operating savings, he says, could be diverted to maintenance.

Vermicomposting

I have begun a small Vermicomposter for a friend.

The kitty-litter pail has holes drilled in the bottom (the tray is the lid of another pail) and larger holes drilled in the top (air-passage is important).

Sitting in front of it is the smallest Vermicomposter I have ever maintained – it consists of shredded paper in an old lamb bulb.
