    Blasphemer, you're going to Hell for that entire second paragraph.

    No, it wasn't at or near the Harb. It was in a municipal parking lot behind a Chinese food restaurant. As an aside to our bar situation, though, we now have one fewer tavern in the Sound. The 135-year-old Queen's Hotel, known in recent years as Beach Brothers, was bulldozed on Monday. I stole some bricks from the rubble on my way home from work that night -- I did a lot of drinking in that place, I'm entitled to something out of it.

    Hey, I've been to the Queens.

    Have they figured out the motive for the murder? Meth lab quarrel gone bad? :)

    Ahem, what part of that second graf isn't true?

    And I thought all of Owen Sound was near the Harb. Hope Norma Jean's wasn't harmed in any way...

    Everyone in town has a theory -- the victim was a sort-of prominent businessman -- but the cops weren't saying much of anything yesterday. Maybe there'll be more to come today? I'm on my way to find out!

    This place is two blocks north of the Harb, the Queen's and Norma Jean's. Okay, I guess that's near in the sense that, where you live, "near" means anything within a couple of miles. :)

    Regarding your second graf, Detroit does not have better hockey and baseball and I wouldn't admit it even if it were true (which it's not) and the CFL still rules over the No Fun League. Perhaps not in talent, but as far as entertainment value is concerned there's no comparison.

    How come there's nothing on the Sun-Times website? However, I did find out Meaford has an official song. What gives?

    Seriously, how many murders does Owen Sound average in a year? One or two, maybe?
