Dim thinking Dennis
It's pretty clear that the lights are out inside Liberal MP Dennis Mills's head. But this Tuesday, the lights outside his Danforth office - a huge electronic billboard --were still on shining his bizarre ideas out at an angry constituency. Forget Mick, Dennis, there's an energy emergency going on.
Vin-sanity behind marketing campaign
With his injuries, side trips to college graduations on playoff game days and the general feeling that onetime Toronto Raptors NBA superstar, Vince Carter, has lost his intensity, the Dino slamdunkers have chosen a funny way to market themselves. Beside a tendon-tightening shot of a crazed Carter - must be an old photo - the newspaper ad headline screams "Renew Your Passion". Must be desperate management's way of telling their somnolent superstar to get his ass in gear.
Turn out the lights, yeah, turn out the lights
For decades, to the Tories, the word "conservation" has meant nothing more than a possible typo on their Conservative moniker. And of course Ernie Eves and Mike Harris' insane attacks on our once public energy utility have deepened the current crisis. But when the emergency passes, will we be able to hang onto the conservation consciousness that the blackout brought home? We can toss the Tories but we also have to keep turning off lights and reducing our dependency on the grid without rotating black outs to motivate us.
What's his Tory anyway?
Tom Jakobek getting his nuts in a knot about propriety and political morality? His desperate Justice of the Peace appeal against Barbara Hall and her "friends" is so absurd it leaves no room for satire. But at least it explains his hopeless campaign for mayor; to trip up front-running Babs. But who's he doing it for? We won't jump to conclusions just because Truth-challenged Tom suddenly has free cable, free video rentals and a trunk full of cell phones.
John Tory AKA The Nerd Who Would Be King has unleashed an absurd radio campaign in his run for mayor. Tough Talkin Tory, like many right-wingers before him is pledging to fight Toronto's growing crime in ads that sound like promos for a bloody action flick. One problem though, crime is down in Toronto. We think voters will get behind a candidate who actually knows something about the city they hope to run.
