Street Meat

Bye, Ernie. I Really Didn't Know You.

The Ryersonian gets scooped, again!

And that was on the front page, too.

So, you're probably wondering how a story about a hot dog vendor makes A1 at the Star? I understand the story is part of the paper's initiative to cover minorities in the city. This minority group, of course, is street meat vendors. They are a seriously under-represented group in Toronto's news coverage.

I wonder if Ernie's woman will still be there servin' the dogs??

Czobit said...

Not sure. In any event, I never ate one of Ernie's weiners.


Um, maybe 'hot dogs' would have been a better word choice?

Amanda said...

Does it not strike you as odd that the education reporter was covering this?

Czobit said...

Heh. Yeah, I wondered about that. I'm sure there's more important stories for an education reporter to cover than a story about a university's famous hot dog vendor.

But I'll leave running the Star to the professionals.
