Subject: Toronto theater collapses

I'm not sure if any FK alumni performed here, or if it is an FK landmark in
anyway, but I'm sure someone here will know:

TORONTO - Part of a downtown Toronto building collapsed on Monday, trapping as
many as five people.
A wall of the Uptown Theatre fell onto the neighbouring Yorkville English
Academy, trapping students as young as eight years old under rubble, said a teacher
at the school.

The collapse occurred at about 10:35 a.m. ET.

The school was one of several nearby buildings damaged in the collapse.

Demolition work has been underway at the historic theatre, which was to be
reconstructed.

Fire and rescue crews rushed to the scene near the busy Yonge-Bloor
intersection.

Bloor Street was closed between Yonge and Bay streets.

Tow trucks took parked cars away from the area to make room for emergency
vehicles, and workers checked for gas leaks.

The nearby subway lines were unaffected.

The theatre was built in 1920, and served as a venue for movies and live shows.

I have no idea. I'm just passing along the news article. I doubt at this point
they are even wondering about rebuilding or not, as they are still digging
through the rubble the last I heard.

Does anyone know where this is in Toronto. The address is very familiar to me
so I'm pretty sure I've been in the area. Maybe in relationship to an FK site?

Anyway, this is such a tragedy!

Subject: The theatre that collapsed in Toronto

I just checked the Toronto Star website, plus I heard from a non-FK friend in
Toronto.  The Uptown was a movie theater, which was under demolition.  The
owners had closed it because it needed to be brought up to code for accessibility,
and are building a multiplex across the street.  One person is reported dead,
fourteen trapped. Because the building onto which one wall of the theater
collapsed is a school, there are children missing and injured. I don't know the
age of the person who died.

I don't know where it is, but Anne -- the non-FK friend -- referred to it as
"the old Uptown Theatre" as if it's a local landmark.

Subject: LaCroix's view of Christmas

Here is a poem that I wrote. It's totally from
LaCroix's point of view:


A Vampireís Christmas Carol
by Victor Roscetti


I truly love the Christmas season,
please donít get me wrong,
The way you humans fight and feud,
and bustle in the throng.

In packs you prowl like rabid wolves,
to find a parking space,
You all profess ďPeace on EarthĒ,
Yet your acts are a disgrace.

If you would find the perfect gift,
but in anotherís hand,
You surely would rip out their heart,
or some such vital gland.

I see it in your human eyes,
the anger, hate and lust,
to buy the biggest, newest gift,
Itís what you surely must.

I see that red clothed beggar-man,
with his kettle and his bell,
you walked on by, ignoring him,
I drained him and he fell.

Shoppers just walked over him,
he lie there in plain sight,
another Santa made my list,
shall I find more tonight?

This is why this season is,
my favorite time of year,
Not for all the trees and lights,
but for despair and fear.

So never shall I say to you,
Bah, Humbug and such,
For I do love this time of year,
so very, very much.

Subject: <groan>! and a FK moment

 I've taken a temp assignment at Amazon.com in nearby Fernley until December
23rd, since we REALLY need the money. We are now working mandatory 60 hours a
week, so if you email me and I don't answer right away, don't freak out! I leave
my house at 4:30 am and don't get home until 6 pm (I catch a bus to work and
it's about an hour commute total). When I get home, I'm tired, sore (I'm on my
feet all day) and all I do is eat and go to bed. I will try to check my email,
but I can't make any promises. Today is my only day off until next Monday.
Sadly, this means I will not have any time to work on my DarkNN Christmas
Challenge contest story. I do, however, want to see LOTS of them posted by all
of you! Remember, the deadline is next Sunday, December 14th!  Good luck to all,
and happy writing!
Also: I had a WEIRD FK moment Friday! I scan in packages to be wrapped and then
sent out, and I came across a piano music CD with the following card to be
attached: "Nigel: Ger recommended this CD, so I hope that you enjoy it. Give our
love to all. Aileen and Ger". Is this freaky, or what??  'Aileen and Ger' lived
somewhere in County Cork, Ireland, and Nigel and his wife (I think the name was
Barbara, but I could be wrong) live somewhere in California. No, their last
names weren't 'Bennett' and 'Wyn-Davies'. One was 'Mulgrew', and I forget the
other. I couldn't stop laughing for ten minutes!
Okay, enough rambling, I have to go start the soup for dinner.
Take care and God Bless you all!

Didn't the news article state they had closed Bloor between Bay and
Yonge? So I'm guessing it's on Bloor, and in the downtown area.

Things like this are always tragic, but they are even more so when it involves
children. I will be praying for the safety of those trapped, as well as those
working to rescue them.
