I took the Skytrain to work today. Along the way, my iPod cued up a rather unsatisfying track by Lily Allen. The song, called “No Fair,” concerns Ms. Allen’s bedroom misfortunes with her nice-guy boyfriend. (Or should I say ex-boyfriend?)
A song in a playlist might seem uneventful but the train happened to be passing the Olympic Village site. The big misfortune. Talk about no fair.
Miro Cernetig recently had a sit-down with the mayor to chat about the first 90 days on the job. Being 90 days, this is the end of Gregor’s warranty period. Miro touches on Millennium Watergate and the potential cost to taxpayers. The mayor’s advisers privately forecast losses in the $200-300 million range. This isn’t good news but at least it’s realistic news. Two months ago, wet dreams of a “market rebound” had the politicos contemplating profits.
In other news, Quatchi remains uncooperative with the investigation into Peter Ladner’s stolen memo.
