I am relatively new to 'Raise the Hammer' and have stumbled across this article. Although I am currently resident in Scotland, I was born and raised in Hamilton and almost fell off my chair laughing as I read this. To Mr. Bull, I can only smile and shake my head in quiet agreement about his experience in our great city. There's an expression I learned long ago - "Only in Hamilton..." and how true it is. Many Hamiltonians will tell you that living here is to experience the unique culture of this city which is founded on the raw character of many of its inhabitants. My Wife, who spent three years in Hamilton, looks back on her time affectionately and recalls how you just never knew who would meet or what would happen from one day to the next. Although I'm sure that many ex-GTA incomers might find this disconcerting, I have always loved the unpredictable nature of living in our fine city and miss the days that I would return home to say "You'll never believe what just happened to me on King St." - I hope Mr. Bull is still a resident, and in future, confrontations with vicious scooter drivers can usually be settled quickly by barking at them like a Doberman. If you show them that you can be as crazy as they are - they usually back off...Have Fun!!!
