The Crack-Smokin', Murder-Rantin' Mayor of Toronto
Toronto's Rob Ford Problem. (The New Yorker, 11/7/2013)
It's a mystery to me. As everyone who watches “The Daily Show” or “David Letterman” now sort of knows, Toronto elected Rob Ford to be its sixty-fourth mayor, in 2010. Asking why a city of two and a half million mostly sane people would do such a thing makes for an interesting conversation.
And that's not all.
Ford recently admitted to smoking crack cocaine. "There have been times when I've been in a drunken stupor," he sez.
There must have been many times, sir!
