Your morning news roundup for Thursday November 15th, 2007:

TTC Chairman Adam Giambrone is promising to improve riders' experiences. Wanna know if that bus is ever coming? No worries, they're gonna install a whole buncha crap to the tune of ten million dollars over the next few years.

But wait a sec, cities like Montreal already have some of these things in place (re: personal map generation online to plot travel and associated times), and it costs adults less every month than it costs students in Toronto to ride. Even with the exorbitant fees and hikes, the TTC is still expecting to come up 30+ million dollars short next year.

So what if Jiri likes to hang out with his wang out, who doesn't? I'm in my sexy suit as I write this right now. Besides, if anyone wants to hang out near Leafs forward Wade Belak's place for a bit, you run the chance of catching him taking out the trash in the buff.

Some psycho (err, alleged psycho) got out of a second degree murder rap for murdering his wife via a dozen blows with a hammer. A manslaughter verdict was reached after he testified to not remembering murdering his wife while their 9 year old daughter watched.

A man died near Spadina and Bloor after the scaffolding he was standing on for some masonry work fell.

Mayor Miller is supah dupah excited to turn Union Station into the place for Torontonians to hang out.

I'm still waiting for ethanol to revolutionize the way I brush my teeth, so I won't jump for joy at the thought of a bunch v8 engined trucks hauling grapes around.

Mandatory gun violence news.
