Ever Heard of Direct Deposit?

The Star is reporting that Mayor David Miller was given a giant cheque yesterday. They say:

Nothing grabs attention quite like the sight of a tall, blond mayor stalking the city’s streets and subway system carrying a giant cheque for $24.45 million.

We agree. We only wish we could have done a photo essay of Mayor Miller and his Megabucks cheque. We thought the era of jumbo checks had come and gone, but it’s good to see that City Hall is kindling the flames of dorky photo-opage. If they’d only gotten Mayor Boom Boom a suit with shoulder pads then it could have been an homage to 80s excess.
