It happened again! Last night, I walked back to my car and found a parking ticket on the windshield. A big one - over $100 dollars - for being parked in a no stopping zone. The only problem was that I wasn't. In fact, the car was right beside a parking meter.
This has made me all-too-aware of the number of frivolous parking tickets handed out by the Ottawa police. As reported in a recent article on the CBC News site it's not about punishing legitimate infractions any more. It's looking more and more to me like fund raising at the expense of already over-burdened tax payers.
I hate to do it, but I'm going to go to court and waste half a day on nonsense.

in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways,
totally worn out, shouting 'Holy s**t, what a ride!'” - Hunter S Thompson
Thank You Ottawa Police

Rob Joining Prestigious Project
Rob is leaving the music business for the foreseeable future to take part in an International project called Dismantling the Web. Since its inauspicious beginnings some 20 years ago, the experiment known as the Internet has been called by some a "dismal failure". Recently, world leaders recommended to begin the process of taking the entire Internet offline, one server at a time. It's not known exactly how long that will take, but analysts estimate that five years would not be an underestimation. Once the project wraps up, Rob will return to making music. At this time, Rob would like to thank everyone for their unwavering support over the years.
