Your Toronto morning news roundup for Monday September 29th, 2008:

Tomorrow marks the launch of the long-awaited CRTC national "do-not-call" list. Will you be registering your phone number, in hopes of stopping aggressive salespeople from calling you during your evening/weekend personal time? How much are you currently pestered by marketers calling you? Take our poll below.

There's nothing worse than including a spelling or grammar error in your attempt to point out someone's spelling or grammar errors. 294 schools in Toronto sold annual planners to thousands of students, and the planner contains one particularly glaring and embarrassing error. A hushed settlement has been made between the board and the manufacturer.

Cyclists that take part in the monthly Critical Mass ride are confused and concerned about their relationship with police. Sometimes it seems that the police are supportive and on their side, while at other times it's clearly not the case, with dozens of tickets being issued to participants. Is this continued fallout from that one grave mistake that hurt their cause and relationship with authorities?

All house parties are not created equal. At one this weekend, a limbo champion was crowned and the winner won't stop bragging about it at the office cooler today. At another, a knife fight broke out, at least four people were stabbed, and none of the victims want to talk about it.

Apparently the position as the city representative on the much-loathed Toronto Port Authority is a much sought-after job. Over 100 applicants are being reviewed by the board. Whoever eventually lands the job should be well-versed in fighting to no end.

Got a kid? Wondering if he/she has head lice? CityNews has a how-to on detecting and eliminating the infestation on your little one's head. Gross but useful info, I suppose.
