Morning Brew: March 2nd, 2007

Your morning news roundup for Friday March 2nd, 2007:

The cleanup of the 32-car freight train derailment in Ajax is being hindered by the continuing icy rain conditions. Crews should have things cleared by this afternoon.

Christie Chewy Chips Ahoy! cookies may have been contaminated using a "sharp metal object", according to Kraft. Check those recalled product lot codes.

Police shot a man who was wielding a 2x4, and two police officers were also injured at a Markham Road & Eglinton area store. SIU is involved, so details are not many yet.

The Toronto Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox in their spring training home opener in Dunedin, Florida.

The TTC doesn't want to be dirty, and they're looking into cleaning things up. I propose that whoever has been assigned this task take a trip to Kipling and use the toilets there, if they dare.
