Bus Lanes, Ghetto Overhauls, Blue Jays Losses, Growing Unemployment, Assaults in Mexico


Did you hear? Nuit Blanche is back!
Transit officials are considering a bus-only lane on the DVP to promote mass transit. “For a passenger, it’s very attractive. There’s nothing better than sitting on a bus and going by stopped traffic,” says GO Transit managing director Gary McNeil. High five to that.
Much like the Regent Park revitalization, Lawrence Heights is getting an overhaul.
The Jays suffered their ninth consecutive defeat last night with an embarrassing 8-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Oh, and BJ Ryan had Tommy John surgery and will be out for the season. Sigh.

Growing up in Whitby, I remember how scoring a job at the Oshawa General Motors plant was the most successful thing a student could do for a summer job ($25/hour). That just doesn’t seem to happen anymore.
Ahh, Mexico…margaritas, fajitas, and getting punched in the face by a cab driver while corrupt cops watch. It seems like everyone’s getting assaulted on vacation in Mexico nowadays.
Gilmour Girls, 7th Heaven AND King of Queens will be airing their series finales in the next month. Oh no, television will never be the same!
