Blog Update 05/02/07

The Toronto Sun Family blog is adding farewell columns published in the Toronto Sun before the tabloid forgot how to properly thank parting vets for their years of service.

The first four columns pay tribute to Les Pyette, Hartley Steward, Trudy Eagan and Peter Brewster.

Our new Toronto Sun Family list of published authors keeps on growing, with 32-plus former and current Sun staffers listed.
