Tory Leadership Roundup
"We need a man with the right stuff
We need Jim Flaherty to get things done

Makes it better for everyone (aboriginals and poor people not included)."

B. Ernie's pitch to Bert to keep the act togetherC. Ernie Eves's campaign slogan

police academy 8: jerking the chief's chain
Go figure. Craig Bromell pushes for a non-confidence vote against chief Julian Fantino, 90 per cent of the officers who respond say they have no confidence in the chief, but the police union won't call for Julie's resignation? No, Bromell isn't playing games at all.

The Loving Society of Letterpress Printers and the Binders of Infinite Love ran into a little, er, resistance at the Toronto Reference Library, where they currently have a book art exhibit. Seems the library didn't dig their name and didn't want it on the signage for the show. Too trippy?Too provocative? What? After some discussion, the parties have come to a compromise that will allow the Loving Society to have signage at the entrance to the show but not facing the street. And we wonder why there's not enough love in the world.
