RIP Vaclav Havel


Another of my heroes is gone.

Czech playwright-cum-dissident-cum-president has succumbed to respiratory problems and passed away at home this morning.

Introducing... WinnipegZoom!

Here's some good news... It appears Winnipeg has a new online forum, WinnipegZoom!

Former New Winnipeg member Munchkinguy has started a forum of his own to fill the gap (such as it was) left when the New Winnipeg forum closed its doors.

Please give WinnipegZoom a look, the forum can be found here.

I've joined under my original alias "conceitedjerk", and hope to help Munchkinguy build up the WinnipegZoom community.  Although I don't know how much time I'll have to spend there, you can bet I'll be good for a few comments...
