Man Shot, Weather Hot, Beckham Not, Uh, Able To Play Soccer

A soccer game between Toronto and Los Angeles was played last night in honour of the Becks-Posh royal visit to Toronto. Although an injury prevented Beckham from taking the field, his handsomeness remains unimpaired. And oh yeah, the final score was 0–0.
A 19-year-old man was shot to death in a stairwell near Parliament and Gerrard on Saturday afternoon. The sad thing—apart from somebody being dead—is that a single shooting in a weekend is starting to look pretty good.
A group of left-leaning U.S. bloggers are looking to unionize in order to gain access to health care, collective bargaining agreements, and various other benefits usually associated with real jobs. Torontoist looks forward to manning the barricades in solidarity with our brothers and sisters toiling in the bloggy sweatshops of the world.
Speaking of sweatshops, it’s still sidewalk-egg-frying weather in Toronto, in case you hadn’t noticed. The medical officer of health has said that the heat alert will remain in effect until it stops being so hot.
