In recent weeks, when retrieving the PQB News from the end of my driveway, I have been hearing a very irritating noise and it wasn’t until today that my investigation identified the source.
No, it wasn’t a bang, or a shrill, or a hiss and not a screech, it was, in fact, a “whine” emanating from the “Letters” section. Whining about Urban Containment Boundaries, whining about deforestation, whining about over-development, whining about golf courses, whining about ineffective civic councils, whining about a pro-development newspaper, whining about garbage cans, whining about too much traffic, too much motorcycle noise, too many animals, whining, whining, whining.
It occurs to me that some of those whining folks might consider life in a Third World or war-afflicted country where food, shelter and safety are the real issues of humanity.
Had not the past decades of our little community experienced growth and change we would never have known this paradise to exist nor have chosen it as our home.
No doubt these changes will continue into the future – it’s called progress.
So please stop with all the noise and enjoy life’s ride – apparently it doesn’t last forever!
