With another hot, humid and smoggy day coming on, the City of Hamilton's Medical Officer of Health has bumped the city's heat warning to stage 2. That means the City is opening public cooling centres, identified by exterior signs that read "Cool Down Here".

The City also recommends the following actions to reduce the risk of illness:

Finally: Seek medical attention immediately if you experience heavy sweating; weakness; cold, pale and clammy skin; weak pulse; fainting; or vomiting.

On CHCH this morning, they mentioned that people should use public transit and not drive, because the smog is dangerously high today, then in the next breath, they said, "Over to Lesley with your drive in to work!" Oh well, what do you expect from a Tiger Cats cheerleader?

That's how I feel every morning when I read the paper.

What, are cheerleaders below your social class APV? If I had a daughter, I'd be proud to have her as a TigerCat cheerleader. Hmmm, what does that say of me in your view APV?

Ryan, on my 2nd coffee as well, and plan on a couple beers after work, oh well, I did walk to work though and I do see that as a good thing, I didn't die from heat exchaustion from my 25 min walk this morning. ;)

I meant cheering for cars, no reference to anyone's gender or class or social standing!

And what exactly does being a TigerCat cheerleader have to do with cheering for cars?

HF you're downvoted not because people don't like you but because the obvious seems to evade you quite easily...

Well frank, I'll admit I'm not the brightest wick in the world but I manage at any rate. ;)

Good ole cognitive dissonance. Who needs bikes when we can plaster a bunch of "green" and "sustainable" platitudes on our cars and gas stations?
