Every time I try to check the football scores, there's some boring news bulletin on. I'm sick of it. #Toronto #TOpoli pic.twitter.com/BUJZR1Wg97

Both... it's not an either/or proposition ... that's called a false dilemma ... nice try though

Just for future reference though, what kind of criminal behaviour wouldn't be okay? Would admitted child molestation be okay? What kind of criminal behaviours are okay and what kinds aren't as it pertains to Rob Ford? And do your rules apply to Rob Ford or do they apply to everyone?

Actually, a good mayor would understand that one's role comes with special responsibilities - and that putting oneself in a position vulnerable to blackmailing (due to criminal behaviour) is a big no-no. The lack of judgement exhibited makes one unfit to hold office to start off with - it makes the victim/criminal debate patently pointless from a governance perspective.

But if one insist - you can't blackmail someone who is squeaky clean. This isn't a chicken or the egg. And the initial mistake is further compounded by even more unsavory associations with criminal elements of the city, threat of violence via proxy, blantant lies and stonewalling. Sorry, this individual is irredeemable.

Haha, you are so out of touch with reality. The Sports Junkies are basically a bunch of clowns - their whole schtick is to bust on everyone. No doubt their plan is to have him on a few times and then after a couple of visits they'll eviscerate him on air.

BTW I live in the DC area and I can tell you that there is no one that I know who 'can't get enough of him'. 99% of Americans think your city and country is a total and complete JOKE right now. Believe me, this circus is not good in any way, shape, or form for your city.
These guys think their hero is a celebrity now, they don't know people are actually laughing at how stupid the man is.
 
interesting shot of Fords, ahemmm, "book" shelf.
I see:

1) The Die Broke - pop-financial garbage that I'm sure Doug gave him and has never been opened
2) After September 11 - Reuters compilation I believe
3) NORR architects - designers of many a casino! (and, admittedly, other things such as the nightmare that is Pearson)

And, is that a Porter plane to the right?!

anybody else recognize anything? The series of Time/Life looking books?
I've always thought that a peek into ones bookshelf was very telling.

Several volumes of the Time-Life series on the Second World War in the leftmost pile.

That's what it looks like to me. I'm not sure though.

No. What was released today is the balance of the Lisi ITO (Brazen II), which includes summaries of a few taps done in Traveller that were used in the Lisi ITO (Brazen II). It was released today because the provincial Crown decided not to appeal, so that it was no longer necessary to give it until 4:00 PM Friday to decide whether it would appeal.

Nothing from Traveller has been released except only for the summaries of a few taps done in Traveller that were used in the Lisi ITO (Brazen II).

Well if that's it then Ford escapes the noose.

Unless something else with hard evidence or testimony crops up then we should get used to all of 2014 being his campaign for re-election.

Can't say I'm very happy with TPS right now.
 
Well, yeah. Using the real names is too conspicuous, thug or no.

Though, if you ask me, the slang is conspicuous enough as well. Yays, caps, Ds, kizzle, zooms, trees, ebos, cid, etc.
Doesn't exactly sound like people are talking about kitchen utensils.

There may be more info.

(1) It is noted in the Lisi ITO (Brazen II), which itself contains summaries of only a few taps done in Traveller, that by the time of the Traveller arrests (June 13) "thousands" of taps had been obtained in Traveller. It is within the realm of possibility that some of the latter 1,000s concern Ford even though they were not relevant to the Lisi ITO (i.e., not relevant to getting search warrants for Lisi or the dry cleaner guy),

(2) Donovan said on 1010 that more "bombshells" are coming that are not covered in the Lisi ITO.

One thing that sticks out for me, the mostly CFL shelf has no Argo stuff... And a couple of souvenirs from that trip to Austin.
 
My teens use all of this slang (except for Hezza, for which I am thankful). On a side note, my daughter has a kindergarten classmate named "Kush", what's up with that?
