Rob Ford, the mayor of Toronto, recently admitted to using crack cocaine as if was some nonchalant activity people do in a “drunken stupor”. Exact words, “Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Ford told reporters outside his office. “But no, do I, am I an addict? No. Have I tried it? Probably in one of my drunken stupors, probably approximately about a year ago.” As far as I know, Toronto isn’t burning to the ground, so it would be ignorant for me to say whether or not Ford is competent enough to remain in office, but what I can tell you is he had this ‘deal-with-it’ moment when he wore this retro NFL logo tie to his press conference, where he set the record straight about his crack cocaine abuse. “No, I’m not an addict and no I do not do drugs. I made mistakes in the past and all I can do is apologize but it is what it is. And I can’t change the past and I can apologize to my family, my friends, my colleagues and the people of this great city.” Ford has refused to step down as mayor and choose alleigance to one specific NFL team. He likes them all.
