Comments: (this is where I get to kvetch)
Please limit your comments to 300 words. (ha ha ha... they must know me!)

The wait for this bus today took about an hour. The only reason I took the Yonge bus and not the subway is because I was travelling with a stroller and both North York Centre and Eglinton stations are inaccessible. The delay - and the inaccessibility - is completely unacceptable considering these are such important and central locations. Our round-trip travel time was over 3 hours for a 1/2 hour swimming lesson - no wonder I arrived home exhausted with two children in tears. Next time, I will have no choice but to drive - for $2.50 in parking, it's cheaper than the TTC, too (two adult fares, two child fares). How awful that it's impossible to travel around town in an environmentally-friendly and family-friendly way.

Please be assured that your comments will be directed to the appropriate area in the TTC for staff review and any action deemed necessary. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
