R.I.P. "Toronto :: City of Dreams - Run by Morons"

I feel I have to preserve this somewhere, since I really liked the title of my former blog. It will disappear during blog renovations and re-tooling to change this into my Calgary Sun column archive, so here it is one last time for posterity:

Toronto :: City of Dreams - Run by Morons
Proof that every village has more than one idiot. Stephen Lautens cracks wise about his favourite city.

There, now I feel like I can move on.

Coming soon, and not a moment too soon...

Greetings all three of my readers.

I see it's been a year since my last post, so this is clearly not working. Just another dead skunk at the side of the information superhighway.

All the usual reasons:
  1. Too busy with my real life, as I don't live in my parents' basement with my collection of DS9 action figures;
  2. Toronto has so much crazy stuff going on at any one moment, that I would have to spend my entire day trying to record it, or even picking the dumbest thing from a large number of qualified candidates;
  3. My Calgary Sun column takes up all my creative writing time.
So, I've decided to put this virtual real estate to good (or at least better) use by posting my weekly columns here as they come out. They used to be on my website (, but all the formatting was a pain, and that was created BB - before blogging. Yes Virginia, there was a world before blogging.

So, stay tuned for my columns to start appearing here as an archive.

And Toronto - stay crazy. I know you can do it without me.
