Rob Ford and invisible elves  
FAST FIVE:
* The budget deficit hit another low. Also: the Atlantic's guide to how to argue about it.
* Follow-up: Syria is actually destroying its chemical weapons.
* Twist ending: Metro says the trains aren't crowded enough.
* Today's top headline: "The Rob Ford crack tape is real, and the police have it."
* Runner-up: "Why so many Icelanders still believe in invisible elves."

Seriously, Canadian politics are getting real, yo! The Conservatives are throwing each other under the bus over this whole Senator Dufffy/Wallin/Brazeau debacle and Rob Ford is the crack-smoking mayor of our largest city. Boo howdy, Canada - I didn't know you had it in you! Heck, I may even stop reading US politics for awhile and switch to Canadian -- and that never happens because wow, Canadian politics are boring as hell.

Interesting, didn't know about the Duffy/Wallin/Brazeau scandal.

The Globe and Mail even published Duffy's speech verbatim because it's been such a gong show.
