You’re Charging HOW much, and a Call for Submissions

Quick post today with a bit of reading to finish off the week – an excellent article I found on a friend’s FB wall about the true cost of handmade:

And finally if you didn’t have time to tune into the show of shows otherwise known as the 2012 Budget hearings, I recommend you wander over to Torontoist where they live blogged the hell out of them:

That’s me in the red hat.

Also an excellent commentary by Hamutal Dotan on Government, Ford Style.
