Dear GYA, Yes, it's true. I smoked crack cocaine a while back and, to be honest, I do all sorts of crazy shenanigans in my drunken stupors. How can I be held responsible for all the times I got wasted, caught the 5th street bus downtown, met up with my buddy Crazy Eyes, picked up a crack rock for $20 and casually smoked it in a dumpster filled with kitty litter behind my office? Anything happening tonight that doesn't involve crack? - Rob Ford, Mayor of Toronto---
