Extra, Extra: Raccoon Agility, Doug Ford’s Handwriting, and Subways of the World

Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.

  • The video embedded above was apparently taken somewhere in the east end. Raccoons are so cute. It’s too bad they’re all sociopaths. [Via Reddit]
  • Doug Ford has the handwriting of a small child—and also, apparently, no grasp of what an apostrophe is for.
  • XKCD, the brilliant webcomic, broke with its usual format today to present a scale drawing of all the major subway systems in North America, including Toronto’s.

    Give Doug a break, he was born wealthy so had no need of an education. The troubling thing is he’s the smarter of our twin mayors.

      Doug is a raccoon that has taken human form.
