A Great Canadian


I just heard that Stompin' Tom Conners died today. Awww, I feel sad. I was a big fan of his in the '80's, concurrent with being a big punk rock fan. Tom had that punk spirit, even if he could be total cornball at times. He was my kind of Canadian hero. I got to meet him once and he was a really genuine, nice guy. RIP Tom, I'll go play Fire in the Mine now.

    Tommy Douglas, Tom Thompson, Stompin' Tom... You're right. We have been blessed with some amazing Toms. Heh, Heather! Would you consider embroidering a panel of the 3 Toms as the 3 Graces? Jean-Pierre
