Baby Boom

Apparently after 10- and 12-hour shifts, not everyone is feeling the long day and many still have plenty of energy to make babies.  How else to explain a record number of babies born in the city here last month?

I find this interesting for many reasons, chiefly because this exposes the myth that Fort McMurray is only a boom town full of  hard-drinking men as the nonsensical crap that it is.  Of course I already knew of the rather impressive number of children seeing their first light here 16 months ago when my own son was born here.
