  • CityPlace’s snoetry writers are back! The above photo landed in our inbox yesterday, and we were predictably charmed.
  • Toronto artist AA Bronson is rumbling with the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. over its refusal to remove his artwork from one of its exhibitions—a situation that is drawing headlines because Bronson wants his work removed in protest of the gallery’s decision to remove another artist’s video from the same exhibit, after conservatives complained that it was offensive. The Mark has Bronson on video explaining his position.
  • Many Torontonians are worried about how our new mayor is handling the budget, transportation, and other crucial issues. Everything is going to be okay though! Ford has proclaimed this Red Tape Awareness Week.
  • In other Ford trivia: the first book about our new mayor is coming soon! It is called The Little Book of Rob Ford, and its author is The Unknown Torontonian. (Scroll down to the fourth item.)
