I'm in my 60s, don't subscribe to anything and am better off for it. To much misinformation, misdirection and manipulation that has cost Hamilton, Hamiltonians and Canadians dearly. Pierre Burton writes well about this phenomenon. Blood shed, lives ruined, nation ransacked. I like to think the media is a mile wide and an inch deep. Knows everything, understands nothing. But far too influential and business biased. So I say good riddance.

But what to do - we need input and guidance. I pay close attention to Matt Taibbi, BNN and various bloggers who seem to know what is really happening. My subscription to Atlantic Monthly lapsed during one of their more esoteric moments but I credit them with ripping the scales from my eyes and with great journalistic standards and letters to the editor section. Magazines are better than papers. Books are better than magazines except for the time factor.

By default, I guess i'm subscribed to CBC radio (aren't we all?), at least their podcasts, along with many other podcast sites, which furnish interesting lectures perfectly geared for my dog walking, kids sports chauffeuring responsibilities, long drives, etc. Hands free, mobile.

This crucial part of the world is unfolding in a way beneficial to the common people who have been trodden upon for far too long. Lets hope the trend continues unhindered by the hand of greedy or incompetent regulators as is too often the case (ie bill C32).
