Rami's Illegal Sign Crusade

thumbsdownToday's Toronto Star has an article about Rami Tabello's fight against illegal billboards. 283 illegal signs are currently being tracked on this map as he details his fight at http://www.illegalsigns.ca/.

Rami and I attended Michael Power high school and had several classes together. His dad even taught me science in South Portable one semester. Knowing Rami, I got a kick out of this quote from The Star article.

Self-employed, he calls himself a "professional speculator. I play the stock market and bet on horses for a living but I don't consider it gambling. I take advantage of inefficiencies in the betting market on horses. It's a systematic financial approach."

Don't you hate it when others in your graduating class live your dream?

Hey Rammi, the Star's got you as Rami, illegalsigns.ca has you as Rami, but I remember you as Rammi and you've chimed in as Rammi.

What's up with the Rami, Rammi?

No, it's Rami... just spelled my name wrong there! Check the Power yearbook!

So much for my killer memory. In my defence, it's been 14 years...
