Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- The Royal Ontario Museum has a new logo, and, according to Marketing, it’s designed to remind people that the place is “not just dinosaurs.” Maybe they should have gone the other route and doubled down on the dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are awesome.
- It’s said that no publicity is bad publicity. That must be why the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is buying ads in programs for the upcoming Toronto run of The Book of Mormon, a Broadway musical that pokes fun at some of the tenets of the religion.
- Seemingly everyone but The Varsity missed this, but on Twitter last week Margaret Atwood threatened, ungrammatically, to disinherit the University of Toronto over a plan to replace one of its fields with astroturf. [ Nobody missed this but us! It was widely reported last week. So, that's embarrassing.]
- Do you rent a parking spot in someone’s driveway or garage? Apparently, you’re guilty of breaking some rarely enforced City bylaws. How dare you.
