Ah, the last long weekend of summer. What better time to take a vacation, relax, and recall all the racist incidents in Halifax in the last year or so.
If you have friends who do annoying things like play in bands, do stuff about social issues, or own a business, right about now they’re probably lobbying you to vote for them in the “Best of…” contest in The Coast.
My own journalisming is of course entirely original (vote for me! Best journalist!) so I would never steal a concept from somewhere else. I am merely submitting my entry for the “appropriation prize.” I can’t wait to drink with Margaret Wente and her friends! Yay!
Examiner readers, I know you have of course been dying to 1) read lists instead of actual news or intelligent commentary 2) vote on things even though there isn’t an actual voting system, and 3) do the work I’m getting paid for by submitting your own entries in the comments thus making it look like since I have a lot of comments I must be the best writer (vote for me! Best writer!).
Therefore, I have created a list of “Best of…” things for you to vote on and/or suggest your own entries for. And by the way, making lists and putting in links and stuff actually takes forever, fuck making lists ever again.
