In an otherwise sane piece, a very jarring sentence:
The familiar image of the pale, asthenic Talmud scholar is not — or not only — an anti-Semitic stereotype, but a perduring reality.
Not certain that isn't one of the more blatantly problematic statements I've read.


From the Home section of the Star, this headline:
One Bloor will be a bold, futuristic building
I.E. One Bloor will be a derivative, ugly building--combining features of flimsiness and repellency sufficient to ensure an easy transition to future "futuristic buildings".
