Daily Aggregation Programming Note

daily-aggregation-2Alert readers might have noticed the absence of Dog Blog’s staple news round-up column in the past week. Sadly, a mighty combination of staff illness (not me) and Too Much Stuff To Do (definitely me) has sabotaged my ongoing efforts to write this thing most weekdays.

But do not mourn this popular feature, my friends — while Daily Aggregation has fallen, it will someday rise again.

Like, maybe Thursday. Thursday sound good? Awesome.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.

Prairie Dog editor Stephen Whitworth was carried to Regina in a swarm of bees. He's been with Prairie Dog since May 1999 and will die at his keyboard before admitting his career a terrible, terrible mistake.

  1. I’m suffering withdrawal. Getting the shakes. Haven’t blacked out yet but it’s been close. Glad to hear my daily dose will return soon. Sorry to hear you’ve been swamped/overworked and that others around you have been sick. May healthier and tamer times prevail to allow the aggregation phoenix to rise.

  2. Like oxygen for my soul. (Just don’t do this to me again, Whitworth. Resuscitation efforts may prove futile next time. And we don’t want that.)
