Goodbye Jonathon Kay! Goodbye Andrew Coyne!

Postmedia Network has sold, and will be moving from, their Don Mills HQ, which I run past every morning on my way to work.   Word is they're headed for a slightly less palatial facility "closer to town". Taste the austerity, fellas, it will help build your character.

Word is they'll be selling off everything, from PCs to coffee mugs to boxes of documents from Conrad Black's time at the paper.  You just stand outside the building and haggle, and they hand you the stuff you bought out through the smashed windows.  Coyne will keep track of the monies raised, as he is the only guy on staff that's handy with numbers.

Best line of this post is "Coyne will keep track of the monies raised, as he is the only guy on staff that's handy with numbers."

YOU run to work? I find this little revelation more intriguing then some story about Postmedia moving its Don Mills headquarters! Has this been a lifetime indulgence or a more recent endeavor to help undo the damage of one two many bacon sandwiches?

Every day for many years. Total about 5 or 6 K per day.

Impressive. Good on ya. I'm always taken with the way we (at least I) perceive people on the Internets. I do think your overt carnivorousness helped shaped that image for me though. If it's any consolation, I envisioned a luxurious mane of hair dancing wildly while you chugged along.

I think this may be their new offices.

I sometimes go to the bank next to the National Post building. The Galleria Korean supermarket is going to miss the Nasty-Posties.

Wow. I gotta get in line in buying their stuff soon. I bet I'll can buy their stuff for less than intended.
