"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

"I've spent time contemplating blog's future.
Time for change? New theme. New design. Different focus. Starting over. Now and Then This and That Freewheeling. Still thinking. "

Personally, since you are no longer a sitting councillor, the pollitical ctitic role is no different than anyone else. you could sit in Tim Hortons over coffee and say the same thing with the same result.

If I were you, I would shut the whole thing down and enjoy the time off.

Your concern for my well-being is touching. But I will be judge of best practices. The right to criticize political decisions is a given but Tim Horton's is not the same as my comfy chair and IPad. 
Signs are this Council may be different to the last and the one before.  
Decisions in the best interest of the community -at -large might become the rule rather than the exception. 
Happier days may be here again but it's a long hard road back and the good guys will need all the help I can give them. 
Even if it's just filling in the details. It's often the nitty-gritty that completes the picture.

Don't even think about shutting the whole thing down! I love all that you write. I do enjoy the political posts probably a little more, but your other posts are just as well written and a great read.
