Your morning news roundup for Monday January 21st, 2008:

TTC drivers are more seriously afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder than our soldiers dodging bombs in Afghanistan, our police dealing with people shot in the head, and people who are raped in alleys? I'm sorry; I just can't wrap my head around this one.

Yesterday, highway 400 turned into what looked like a junkyard, almost instantly. Dozens of people were injured, fortunately none fatally, when whiteout conditions (and some might argue poor driving) prompted a massive 37-vehicle chain reaction, and another 30-vehicle pileup.

The brutal cold spell continues this week. We'll see a peppering of snow tomorrow, but won't see the cold snap break until late this week. I had to change a tire on Saturday, which was not fun (my fingers still feel like they're close to falling off).

The Star has posted a brief video introduction to our new recycling bins. Did you know that they contain RFID chips that will allow for monitoring and collection of collection data?

Bloggers are really good at 21st century trivia. On CBC's Test the Nation, the blogger team (including blogTO's Ryan Couldrey, Adam Schwabe, and Graeme Stewart) cleaned house. Samantha Bee (of Daily Show fame) was the bloggers' supporter and got the top celebrity score, and the best individual score was also by a blogger. Huge congrats to Rick Spence!
