  12. That’s the price of vanity.
  13. Spider goats at the experimental farm.
  14. I know you didn’t read a word of it, but coverage of Fisher & Spezza’s weddings rank as two of the top six most-viewed pages EVER on the Citizen’s web site.
  15. Sens have the cheapest beer among Canadian NHL teams & Alex Kovalev flies a plane.
  16. Harbinger of winter.
  17. Is it too early to plan for Bluesfest?
  18. How about a bar car on on the O-Train?
  19. Happy Halloween.
