We Got Measles, We Got Cancer, We Got A Mediocre Baseball Team

Toronto health officials tied an outbreak of measles to the financial district yesterday, and more specifically to the TD Waterhouse and the Scotia Tower, thus confirming what we have known for many years: bankers and stockbrokers are dirty, filthy people.
A government report condemned the Toronto Catholic District School Board for spending more money on itself than any other board in Ontario, at an average of a hundred thousand dollars per member. John Tory took this opportunity to point out that it is deeply unfair to not allow Jews, Muslims, and people of other faiths to waste grotesque amounts of taxpayer money as well.
