Unearthing Classing Articles from Previous Issues of The Voice Magazine

On the eve of Independence Day for our neighbours in North America’s lower level, we engage in our favourite hobby (after bitching about the weather):  watching the Americans.

Can’t trump this.  Writer Bill Pollett imagines a city like no other.  “In my city, the statues in the square commemorate the heroism of clowns and kindergarten teachers. The pigeons enjoy them just the same.”   Lost and Found — What it’s like in my city, April 21, 2004.
