    Holy time machine, Batman. The article shows "APRIL 12, 2017"



    Sorry

    You're right. My wife comes home and says "You heard about J. Geils?". "No", I say, "Lemme see what's posted. Nope, nothing on CBC. Where'd you hear about it?". "Bob posted something on his Facebook page", she says (Bob is our niece's husband). I took it at face value that he was telling her about a recent event. I gather he likely posted something because it was recently the anniversary of Geils' passing, going by the date on the RS obit.

    This is why "news" passed along via Facebook should not be taken at face value (and why I should doublecheck the dates of things my wife tells me she learned about on Facebook).

    Sheesh. Sorry for the false alarm, folks. Thanks for catching it, grumps.

    I was never so confused in my life as the time I was camping in the Collingwood area during an Elvis impersonator weekend.
