I prepared an April Fools joke for publication this year. In light of current events at City Hall (the attempt to gag citizens), I feel the humour may be too biting and would distract from the seriousness of events at City Hall this past week.

Sadly, my humour piece could be believed. When I began writing it in January, I had no idea transparency at City Hall would suffer the setback of the past week.

The positive in this, I have my 2013 April Fools story ready.
