How about "Be responsible what you throw out." The city is full of trash, be it litter or dumped garbage bags.
Ever look along the Gardiner? It should be renamed the Garbage Express Dumping. Hurray for the trash cops, I say.

Orwell had little use for "isms" or "ologies" of any kind - "smelly little orthodoxies," he called them.

I was in court over half the time from February to April and never saw or heard any OCAP member or supporter act in an intimidating or theatening manner toward the jury.
If Gauthier wants to see intimidation in action, or violence, he should take a good look at the conduct of many Toronto police officers at demonstrations.

Keep it comin'.
You made me smile wide.

In my experience, the fear of baring all in a men's locker room is more about feelings of personal inadequacy and fear of an embarrassing situation.
What is a guy's most common fear as a teenager?
Now transfer that adolescent fear into YMCA showers!

I learned this early on. If I make eye contact with someone interesting on the TTC, I'm generally not going to approach, because I don't want them to think I'm a creep. On every subway, bus or streetcar there's always one creep.Talking to strangers on the TTC is also awkward because you can't go anywhere and are forced to sit there and take pickup abuse.

We have the blessing of the merchants whose shops we vend near. In fact, they have bought from us many times.
The police, however, come and tell us all to leave or they will confiscate our art and write us a ticket. In some cases, this includes taking an artist's tools and supplies.
Is this fair?

You and all the other members of the "Peace at All Costs" crowd seem to conveniently forget that the U.S. spent 12 years using peace to provoke change. Peace failed! War was the only option left and, I may add, the only option that worked!

But I guess that's what's left to complain about since the much-anticipated street-to-street bloodbath in Baghdad failed to materialize.
When peaceniks begin claiming, as Alice Klein has (NOW, April 17-23), that the theft of museum pieces by Iraqis is a symbol of U.S. "privatization" and "imperialism," you know they're running on empty.

We are members of the Israeli and diasporic Jewish community. We see our dissenting voice as the very best way to honour our ancestors and our ethical traditions. Is taking someone else's land more important than the Jewish values of love, peace and justice?

Typical copy by a clueless, ignorant and brainless Toronto "entertainment writer" - personal opinions aside, of course.

The few things Elizabeth mentions hearing Black Cat and Korry Deez saying (hoagies, perogies, homie) were actually said by Grimace Love during his live performance.

Not till Chesnutt was already playing did she decide she needed to be up front. About six songs into his set I felt a pain in the back of my leg. It was this woman ramming the footrest of her wheelchair into my leg. I couldn't go forward (stage), couldn't go left or right (people).
Two songs later, the pain was so bad that I simply left the gig. Incidentally, one of the other people "ignoring" the woman in the wheelchair was your photographer, who was right beside me.

I'm happy to announce that I survived the onslaught and evolved into a very successful hiphop producer and engineer; and more is to come. Thank you, my Toronto family. All the best.
