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!
