Your morning news roundup for July 10th, 2007:

We have a lot of rights, but should Torontonians have a right to know just how much local businesses are fracking up the air in our fair city? With only 3% of businesses making enough of a dent to even make an impact on the sensors, it could be a tough sell. Speaking of air quality, there are more "clean" cars on the road, and they're producing even more combined smog than before.

You could always check out the new Air Quality Health Index to see if businesses and cars have ruined your weekend.

Part of the 401 collapsed yesterday. Extreme heat is the prime suspect, though, he has yet to turn himself in.

$90,000 worth of stolen gum has been recovered. When questioned, the suspect claimed that the taste of Juicy Fruit really moved him. Gumshoes aren't buying it.

It turns out we're all really, really stoned.

TV has long since answered the age old question of whether or not crime does indeed pay (answer: it does. Quite well). One thing I didn't know was the Tony Soprano is not actually a local crime lord.

Do you actually think we'll ever give up on trying to bring loose limbed pole vaulters into the city? If there is indeed a god, then no, we'll never stop trying.

The Star's Joey Slinger is all uppity over "the commies" and their plot to keep our gums from freezing.
