Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the
round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're

them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change
things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the
crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that
they can change the world, are the ones who do.

  1. Has anyone noticed the juxtaposition of these two ads ? Sullivan's says "We have to secure the the Federal loan guarantee for the Lower Churchill", and the commercial ad says "We must be cracked" . Honest mistake or subtle messaging ?

  2. Ursula, it's the first thing I noticed. That is a message in itself right?

  3. The fact that you and I and hopefully many others can recognize the absurdity of what goes on around us ,I think , gives us a big advantage in keeping a level head , when a great many around us are loosing theirs.

    Brad ,I can't say that I have met many cerebrals of your calibre . I do know one thing and that is that, Brad Cabana will become a prominent figure in the history of our province . You have heard it here .
