Odds & Ends

And so begins month 11 of the Journal de Quebec lockout and strike in Quebec City. The first anniversary for the 252 Sun Media employees on the outside looking in is April 22.

How did the Toronto Star become the "official newspaper" of the Toronto Blue Jays when the Jays' prez is a former Toronto Sun CEO? Talk about loyalties.

George Gross was a Sun trooper to the end, making his exit at a time of day that allowed reporters, columnists and editors ample time to package a most fitting farewell.

And then there were four. George's death leaves four of the original 62 Toronto Sun Day Oners on the job: Peter Worthington, Andy Donato, Christina Blizzard and Jim Thomson.

We've never seen a Sun ad for a "temporary assistant city editor" before but that is what a Saturday help wanted says. It is a one-year contract with union membership. Deadline is next Thursday.

That arrest last week in a 1974 murder cold case is another argument for one of the major Toronto dailies to launch a weekly, province-wide cold case review feature.
