As Mr. Spock said in the Star Trek episode, actor Jason Alexander's favourite episode, "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield", change is the essential process of all existence; but, I have to ask: What is happening to Toronto?

The Global Village Backpackers hostel (formerly the Spadina Hotel) is closing its doors today -- yes, today. (I wrote this yesterday but failed to upload until today, Tuesday.) Talk about short notice. There must be a good reason why.

Anyway, another interesting place in the great (formerly "great"?) city of Toronto bites the dust; in this case, the dust laden smog from the intersection of King Street W and Spadina Avenue.

Hmm, I wonder if a condo is going to go up there. King Street suffers the malady, Condo Bacteria.
