  1. Mike,

    I like the blog. I stumbled upon because I wanted to be keyed in on Kensington issues. It’s a relief that I finally discovered my neighborhood association! Were it not for your blog, I don’t know if I even would’ve known ORCA existed (or that my neighborhood WASN’T East Kensington). Thanks for that.
