Your morning news roundup for Tuesday October 16th, 2007:

Movie/music/game bootleggers in Toronto that advertised their illegal business on the web site blockbusted.ca got busted on their block.

Public libraries will once again be open on Sundays, overturning the mayor's cash-saving decision to close them. The closure may have violated library union agreements, and they may be asking for money back as compensation.

Urban sprawl and light pollution in Richmond Hill have rendered an historic UofT telescope so much less effective that the university may sell the property. This same telescope was used to prove of existence of black holes, but it's hard to see space with the overpowering glow coming from the neon signs of Boston Pizza, Home Depot, Indigo, Starbucks, and Walmart.

A transport truck crashed into a car on the 401, and dragged it for a full 3 minutes before noticing and finally stopping.

The Leafs scored with just 4 seconds to go in overtime - on their own net. McCabe is sorry that his frantic attempt to clear the loose puck bounced off both posts and ended up behind Raycroft.
