  1. Re:Drug Test for TTC staff?

    I cannot confirm this, but weed can stay in the system for up to 3 weeks? So, maybe he smoked up AFTER his previous shift?

    That being said, Drug tests are not the way to go.

  2. We have missed out on the continuing odd Globe Business stories about public transit vs. cars.

    Speaking of odd, what exactly was the point in Barbers museum story yesterday? I was honestly not sure.

  3. “The young folks’ home: Sure, the province funds youth programs — but what about the centres best equipped to execute them?”

    This headline scared the crap out of me – I wondered if the writer was asking for money for better gallows & gas chambers…

  4. re: pug awards, i find it very hard to take seriously a contest rooted in design with such a horribly designed website for the second year in a row. try figuring out the rankings when you want to actually see the buildings. impossibly frustrating? indeed.
