Cities Are Made of Stories: A Word on Postal Station K

People talking about this city's buildings and what they mean to us. In a city where the landscape is constantly changing, there just aren't too many of these stories around. There are bright lights and tall buildings -- all the stuff big cities are made of -- but stories that shed light on our city's past and provide us with some common narrative seem pretty hard to come by. Even harder to keep around.

Frida's Unibrow Was a Statement, Not a Gimmick

Dear Art Gallery of Ontario, The week of October 20, while walking past the Drake Hotel in Toronto, one of your employees handed me a unibrow and a card that said I should wear it in order to get 50 per cent off the price of admission to your exhibit "Frida and Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting." I am glad that Frida Kahlo's work is here in Toronto, but I can't help but think this stunt isn't how Kahlo would have wished to be remembered.
