FACEBOOK LIFE IN A BORDER TOWN
I got into the facebook game. Click here for the link!
“I left Windsor in 1995, but I have spent a lot of time thinking about the city ever since. You can blame the economy, or bad urban planning and poor municipal governance, all of which are contributing factors to its current state I’m sure. But at a certain point you have to start blaming the people who live there as well. So many other mid-sized towns have managed to carve a space within their confines for a world beyond two car garages and big box shopping. But something in the attitude of windsorites seems to make that impossible.
Though the people I know from Windsor are by far some of the funniest I’ve ever met, there’s something about their vision of the world – sneering, ironic, self-deprecating, and worst of all, completely uncurious about the world outside of Windsor – that has to be held accountable for the state of the city. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with cynicism and it makes for fun conversation over beers at The Avalon, but you have to fight for things at a certain point.” - A
