Boeing, Boeing not going, going

Will work for Boeing: Pending a vote by union members and quick approval of a package of tax and other incentives by the Legislature, Boeing has agreed to build the 777X in Everett. As part of the deal, the union will make concessions on pensions and the state will extend tax cuts.

Well, in that case: After months of angry denials, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted that he smoked crack cocaine during one of his "drunken stupors," but he vowed to remain in office and would run for re-election next October.

Ford said he is counting on Toronto voters to keep an open mind and hoped they would go to the polls in a drunken stupor.
