QUIDNUNC: Aurora mag wheels into the city


QUID HAS HEARD that the hacks here at this rag have decided that you can’t get enough, and that they need to spread their pulp to all four corners of Aurora and beyond.

Launching a magazine self-importantly titled “Aurora,” the staff here have shown an increased willingness and diligence to line the bottom of more birdcages with pages they produce. I applaud their efforts.

When reached for comment, Commie Editor Dave Perry had none, likely because he was shocked that the phones in the building actually worked.

Word is that the magazine may be coming out monthly and is available now.

I would suggest picking one up and giving it a look. Then sell it on eBay or something.

QUID HAS SEEN that Aurora City Councilman Bob Roth’s affinity for pro-Second-Amendment Internet memes makes his Facebook page a treasure chest for anyone who thinks Obama is at the forefront of creating a New World Order. Or stealing your guns. Or anyone who likes misquoting past presidents.

The page, which is accessible to just about anyone on the Internet, is an insightful stream of information about a city councilmember in a metro city who splits time between civic duties and family responsibilities. It also  features pictures and slogans that are all the rage in conservative circles these days.

There’s no rule against making Facebook pages a clearinghouse for dancing cats, ironic e-cards or semi-fanatical pro-gun slogans. That’s really what the Internet was designed for.

However, there is an idea that there is a time and place for everything. And Facebook is really the time and place to stalk your exes, see how overweight high school friends have become and spy on your neighbors.

QUID HAS SEEN plenty of Aurora intersections full of church goers on Sunday mornings holding signs that Aurora schools should return to more traditional curriculum. Like 2,000 years old traditional.

Intersections along Alameda Avenue over the weekend have been lined with people holding signs that say “Aurora Para Cristo” and “Put God back in our schools.”

It’s a novel idea considering the nation has been steadily moving away from religious studies in public schools for decades.

One problem: Aurora already has schools that offer religion integrated into instruction. They’re called private schools. And there’s plenty of open chairs in them, we hear.
