My name is Peter Adler, but I sign myself as Uncle Pedro

This is all about my city (Edmonton), our world and our universe.

Why that?

It’s just a name for a blog by an old geezer who doesn’t like a lot of things and who loves even more things …

I’m a more than half-a-century veteran in professional journalism on both sides of the Big Pond, with other continents thrown in during that span just for fun. I should be cynical, but I’m not. I should be a pessimist, but I’m not. I like to think that I am a realist but …

I do NOT like political correctness, I fanatically hate fanaticism, and I have good reason to suspect any ideologies as criminal movements invented to rid us of independent thinking.

No, we do NOT really have to be all original thinkers. I, for one, am not one.  But at least we should be free to try.

And this is what these columns are all about.

If you get hot around the collar reading my stuff, it would please me if you tell my exactly why. Please avoid calling me names. You have a right to be stupid, and so do I. But if you tell me what was wrong in my stories, and why, I would be grateful.

Thanks for reading.

    Mily Petre, casto jsme se vidavali v Praze, nez jsi odemigroval do Alberty . I ja, pote, kdyz mne byla udelena “stopka” u Lufthansy v Praze jsem mel obrovske stesti odemigrovat do Toronta … .
    Naposled jsem Te videl, ale nemluvil s Tebou, kdyz jste – spolu s Jirkou Janouskem a dalsimi kolegy z Mladehi sveta – upravovali zahradu Dr Strougala na Hanspaulce ( mel jsem v primem sousedstvi vilu ). S Evou a Jirkou jsem se vidal jeste par let – pry se nyni, po tolika letech manzelsti – rozvadeji ????? Od te doby uz jen ctu Tve clanky a dekuji za ne. Zaroven proklinam, ze jste zrusili ( nejen moji ) emailovou adresu – mel jsem ji moc rad a byl na ni patricne pysny.
    Proc to vse dnes pisi ? Dost pravidelne ctu neviditelneho psa a dnes se tam objevil Tvuj clanek o nove knizce Jirky Janouska. Jirka byl vzdy dobry reporter a umel byt na spravnem miste ( tedy vyjma reditelovani ve Filmexportu – myslim …. ). Jak dostal Barbaru Straisand do vily na Hanspaulku, kdyz v Praze tocila bylo uzasne a nikdo ho nemohl narknout, ze se to podarilo diky tomu, ze byl zetem Dr. Strougala .
    Chtel jsem podekovat, ze jsi mne pripomel Mlady svet, Jirku a hlavne pani sefredaktorku Cermakovou ! Knizku si – diky Tve recenzi – urcite prectu !

    Moc pozdravu
    Honza Rames

    My wife and i have been fulfilled when Michael could conclude his survey out of the ideas he made out of the web page. It is now and again perplexing just to possibly be handing out guidance that many many people might have been making money from. And we also know we now have the writer to give thanks to for that. The type of illustrations you’ve made, the simple web site navigation, the relationships you will make it possible to promote – it’s everything great, and it’s really assisting our son and us imagine that the matter is satisfying, which is certainly exceptionally essential. Many thanks for the whole lot!
