Williams

This is a little out of character for The Bulldog, but dammit it’s my news site so I can do what I want.

Like everyone else, we were shocked at the death of Robin Williams, probably the greatest comedian of our generation. And few knew him better than David Letterman who had Williams on his show about 50 times over the years.

Letterman holds a special place in my heart because when I worked at the Winnipeg Free Press in the 1980s, his talk show came on at 11:30 p.m. (instead of the ungodly 12:30 a.m. slot in the east) since Winnipeg was in the Central Time Zone. So we Central timers got to see, what was then, one of the most innovative shows in television history.

You Built It Hobbs, You Fix It

Hobbs

Hobbs

Kitchissippi Councillor Katherine Hobbs appears concerned about cut-through traffic in residential areas from main arterial roads.

Perhaps Hobbs and city planners should have been concerned about this when they extremified the old west end with huge towers. Traffic problems are obvious and they are occurring before even the giant development at the former Les Soeurs de la Visitation convent is even close to being completed.
