Have you picked up the new prairie dog yet? That’s it in the photo with the friendly and amazingĀ  Regina Folk Festival staff. This issue is the annual Folk Festival spectacular, and it’s got the usual handy-dandy pull-out guide plus a bunch of great articles on the festival itself, including a must-read interview with Buffy Sainte-Marie by Stephen LaRose. Rosie also wrote maybe the best news piece he’s penned this year: a look at the federal government decision to drop $16 billion on shock-and-awe, attack-style fighter planes. Plus there’s a good piece on the recent census flap, an interview with CBC’s Sook-Yin Lee on her new movie which is ALL ABOUT SEX, a fun chat with the band Said The Whale, and the usual And Much More!
