  • The Blue Jays are doing very well—very well indeed. They’ve now won nine games in a row. We are afraid to think about this too much, consider this too closely, or allow hope to blossom and grow. Maybe if we do not pressure or startle the Blue Jays, they will keep winning.
  • This map from the Toronto Star reveals a number of things: the names of all the Liberal, PC, and NDP candidates running in the provincial election; how orange northern Ontario is; how hard it is to see the red bits; and the fact that the rest of the country is actually a terrifying and blank expanse of nothingness.
  • Talk of a dog-park conflict is more than just an excuse for the headline “Barking Mad.” There really is a dog-park conflict going in Baird Park, and it is complicated, heated, and features “a gang of neighbourhood vigilantes.”
