You Say Tomato, I Say Toronto

Mayor Ford
Beleaguered Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is baaccckkk—but he’s no longer acting like Jack Nicholson in the movie “The Shining” or uber-fan Kathy Bates wreaking havoc on James Caan in “Misery.” A couple of months of rehab have morphed Ford into a semblance of a human being, but telling his constituency that he can’t promise to stay sober when he returns to office must be off-putting to taxpayers. Imagine Rahm Emanuel leaving a rehab program and saying he can’t promise to put a lid on his mouth if he loses his temper. Every politician’s got an addiction. Ford’s is scarier.
