30 March 2010

Front and centre: "HEARTBREAK," shouts today's cover, like a belligerent yet melancholy shithead. And it's a sad story, too: a dog is dead because her owner couldn't afford a $1,600 treatment deposit. I don't want to discount the glory of pets (my family recently had to put down our wonderful cat), but maybe this isn't front page news in Canada's biggest city? Personally, I would be embarrassed to pose on the cover of any newspaper with a blown-up photograph of my dead cat (although I wouldn't say no to a centrefold spread in Modern Bereaved Pet Owner). In other news, Toronto has the worst commutes in the developed world.

Toppish left: $20,000,000? With that kind of cash we could make dogs live forever....

Top: TD Canada Trust wants to help you make ends meet. Maybe you should borrow some money and get your mind off things with a night out.

Bottom: The Arizona Bar & Grill seems to be the only reasonable place to party in the GTA these days. It's 5 minutes away from Pearson, has 55 HD screens with "all the sports" (even hurling?) and 4 party rooms with plenty of space for all your guests to kill themselves.

Summary: A disappointment. Anyone want to join me for 1/2 price garlic bread at the Arizona?
