Extra, Extra: Good Books, Bad News, and Crazy Rides

Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.

  • Subway service continues to be out in much of downtown. Above is the scene outside Union, as passengers line up for the 104 shuttle buses the TTC has put on the roads between Osgoode and Bloor stations. (We’ll continue updating the transit situation here.)
  • Torontonian Luka Rocco Magnotta is believed to be responsible for the recent, very grisly murder and dismemberment of Justin Lin. The question immediately arises: to what extent and in what way should media outlets cover such events? The Toronto Standard‘s Bert Archer thinks most of them have been getting it wrong this week. Here’s why.
  • The Eden Mills Writers’ Festival has just announced its 2012 lineup, and there are some very good names on the list.
  • Because it is Friday and it has been a rough week, here is a video featuring a dog and a bicycle. Be sure to watch until the end. [via Yvonne Bambrick]
