Bib 183, riding the Cruise

I just got my con­fir­ma­tion for the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour today - in the email. Bravo, Ottawa Bicy­cle Club. You've made it to the age of email. As snarky as that sounded, I would appre­ci­ate the efforts the club staff and vol­un­teers make if they sent their con­fir­ma­tions on hand-inscribed vel­lum or stone tablets. It's an amaz­ing event and I'm glad to be doing it again this year. 

This made me almost as happy as Dal­ton McGuinty agree­ing to the NDP's wealth tax. As timid and insuf­fi­cient as it is, it's the first time in 20 years that the tax sys­tem has got­ten more pro­gres­sive.
