That cherished prize, Mayor of Palmerston North

OK, so this being my inaugural post in our heroic return from the blogging wilderness, the reader surely has a right to expect something meaningful, insightful - thoughtful even. Sorry...

PN's electing a mayor again soon (I think - do my best to avoid noticing, but these things penetrate your consciousness somehow). I found a flier from one of the candidates in my letterbox today and had a squiz at it, curious as to who would actually wish to be mayor of such a place. In this case, it's a chap with the noble aim of making Palmerston North "a sporting force at the National level."

See, it's this kind of vision that's lacking in the leadership of other hick towns. That's what makes PN great.

here's one up here you'll be ableto have shortly. Just imagine that beautiful boulevard down to the river with all those hideous British trees taken out and replaced with nice cabbage trees and nikau palms.

To be able to put a positive spin on the cold, wet, bleakness that is PN during the university winter break ... ignoble comes to mind, mere mimicry of the shadbolted south ...but then a psycho blogger.
Good to see the return of your words.

The best thing to come out of PN is the Capital Connection.

I catch it most mornings further down the line.

Welcome back.
