Torontoist is one of fourteen cities in the worldwide Gothamist network. Each Sunday, the editors of every site—from LAist to Londonist—choose their most interesting article, a list which is compiled into the network-wide feature Elsewhere In The Ist-A-Verse.
- Gothamist found that an explosive set off outside the Times Square army recruiting center may be similar to five past bombings in New York City.
- Seattlest worried when severed right feet and bottles of rat poison started washing up on local beaches.
- Shanghaiist was surprised by Bjork’s rooting for Tibetan independence at her concert (see video), and the political fallout has only just begun.
- SFist debated the merits of new bronze plaques that will be placed in locations where San Francisco’s homeless have died.
- DCist was obliged to respond to the worst Washington Post Outlook column ever published, in which conservative writer Charlotte Allen tried to make the case that women are dumb.
- LAist found Satan’s ice cream truck trolling the streets, and they recorded the music.
- Bostonist knows the city’s subway and bus system, the MBTA, has problems. So does this 17-year-old, who submitted a report and told the MBTA brass how to fix it.
- Phillyist explored the possibility of an Ivy League prostitute, while their commenters debated the most ethical approach to proving or debunking the story.
- Londonist spent a little too much time looking at airbrushed operatic private parts, and enjoyed an enlightening comment from someone who was there.
