Did you know that there are no public monuments to Ida B. Wells?  Aside from building projects named after her.
From what I gather, the Ida B. Wells monument has been in planning a long time.  Click on the link to take you to the fundraising page, or see their facebook page for recent activity.  Look, most of us don’t deserve a statue.  Ida isn’t most of us.

I made some comics about Ida B. Wells, and then I talk about her for a while, because I am #1 teen fan and I wish I had a poster of her on my wall with hearts all over it.

With the very sad news of Alistair MacLeod’s passing, take some time to read The Boat, his first short story, and one that has never left my mind.
Alistair did a great service as an author to our part of Cape Breton, he was our most talented bard.

So listen, I’m not cool enough to have too many friends in awesome bands, but when I lived in Halifax I had the good fortune to be invited to hang out on my neighbour’s porch, and they happened to be really awesome.  I get to see Jill and Kim again (very exciting!) when they play at Cherry Cola in Toronto on May 8, but in the meantime, click through that pic and treat yo’self to Like A Motorcycle.
