Uh Oh!

Boy, this doesn’t look good. (BoingBoing)


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.

  1. Totally agree with the one comment on the site about the prominence looking like a horse kicking its hind legs. I think the biggest effect it could have is to disrupt communication a bit. I know that’s happened with past solar flares. And I wonder about the people up in the space station, if they’ll have to take special precautions?

  2. I was wondering this morning why the sun burns. What is it burning, and more importantly, doesn’t it need oxygen? How did I get this far as an earthling without knowing the basics about the thing that’s keeping me alive? Sigh.
