UT version of storify!

Since you brought it up...

Finally found Karla's grandparents in the 1921 census rooming with a Jewish family at 39 Denison Ave.
George & Laura Ranovitz. Religion = Salvation Army
 
And of course, thinking "that sounds like a Jewish name"* (which Doug seems to be suggesting about the original surname of Karla's maternal grandfather) is as much of a tired, ignorant stereotype as "my doctor, my lawyer, my..."

*Sure. Tell that to all of the Irish Protestants named Cohen.

So what we are down to then is Mrs Ford herself declaring one way or other aren't we....

Well, there you have it! They ROOMED with some Jewish people, therefore they are Jewish and so is Karla. And her four girls, of course :)

So Eleonora became Laura?

39 Denison now appears to be a parking lot opposite a Polish church.

I was raised in and work for them. Can I be an honorary Jew too?

I wonder which of these were (ever) true of her:

1. pissed at Rob for the k_ke comment
2. pissed at Doug for not mentioning her ahead of the doctor, etc.
3. pissed at Doug for attracting scrutiny of her heritage
4. pissed at Doug for having to speak out to clarify that she was in fact not quite as Jewish as he claimed or as she previously thought

We'll probably never hear it from her, though, not even relayed through SAL.

God, it didn't even occur to me that Doug might be at United Bakers as part of an apology tour. Because he never apologizes. #TOpoli

Doug Ford Must Go ‏@dougfordmustgo 5m5 minutes ago
Sobriety coach Bob Marier just walked into @tomayorford’s office. /CC

What kind of job would he need to do at this point?

Doug Ford is asked if any councillors will endorse him. "Uh, not yet. But i have the endorsement of the people."

If Doug gets elected, then and only then does he have the endorsement of the people. Sorry, I forgot, Doug is clueless, nevermind.
 
Reagan always looked like he believed whatever crap he was spouting, and he probably did.

RR was a professional actor.

"Victor Mature was famously self-deprecatory about his acting skills. Once, after being rejected for membership in a country club because he was an actor, he cracked, "I'm not an actor — and I've got sixty-four films to prove it!" :D
