Winter vacation!

These past few weeks have been a blur of activity (especially that last week .. WOW!).

But, I persevered and survived it! Even have something to show for it 🙂

Check out the link to the right, or hyper-linked here for my recent article that I wrote for Capital News Online entitled: Coming to terms with the Senate.

While it is about the threat of Canadian Senate reform, not the most exciting topic I admit, I like to think I did a pretty good job with it.

What do you think?

Also, here is a little challenge for you called “Where’s David?” Below is the link to the Editor’s Notebook, and can you find where I am?

HINT: I appear twice.

Editor’s Notebook

My Weird Life

So tired …. my body is aching from lack of sleep, and plain ol’ overwork. And the proverbial IN pile never seems to decrease, no matter how productive I am.


And, to make my life EVEN busier, I took on a little side project.

A friend of mine I made via Twitter, Dr. Debby Herbenick PhD, runs the website called My Sex Professor (Located here). In case you cannot tell by the name of her website, she is a sex health researcher with Indiana University.

Once day, over Twitter, she mentioned something about weird facts. So, I sent her one about how flatworms “penis fence,” and she LOVED it.

She asked me if I knew any more weird animal mating facts.

Naturally, being the kind of guy who is obsessed with learning everything about animals he can, I said “ohhh yeah.”

So, she invited me to Guest Blog.

And here is the final product, called “Weird & Wild: Five Ways Animals Get Creative About Sex.

It was a BLAST to research and write.

As I told someone earlier today, I really haven’t had that much fun writing since I started J-school. Tells you something, doesn’t it?

I hope you enjoy reading it, and let me know what you think!
