    Jan 21, 2021

    July 12, 2012. That was the day that the first Society and Politics In Wayne’s World (SAPIWW) column graced the pages of the Morrisons Cove Herald. From the comments I’ve received in person, via email and even the occasional letter, it seems to have been received well. Not everyone liked it, though.

  • The Soul of an Octopus By Sy Montgomery

    Jan 21, 2021

The book “The Soul of an Octopus” by Sy Montgomery seeks to banish the line that separates us from our animal brethren while simultaneously exploring the wonder of consciousness. A National Book Award finalist, “The Soul of an Octopus” introduces the reader...
