Toronto Sun turns 42

Happy 42th birthday, Toronto Sun.

And, yes, you do look thinner.

Take a bow Andy Donato and Christina Blizzard, the two remaining Day Oners from the 62 or so former Toronto Telegram staffers who got it started in the Eclipse Building on Nov. 1, 1971.

Simon Kent, a relative newcomer, has a column on the anniversary today, with different photos used for the print edition and the online edition.

The print edition photos - Don Hunt, Doug Creighton, Ray Biggart and Peter Worthington reading the first Sun and Peter and Lou Grant in the newsroom - bring back a lot of memories.

Good times and good people.

Hopefully, with another anniversary on the books and another Christmas approaching, it doesn't mean more layoffs at 333.
