Hundreds of thousands of people are without power in Toronto today due to a brutal ice storm, but (according to a number of city council members) Rob Ford won’t declare a state of emergency because it means giving up his last shred of power to the deputy mayor. Really.

We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?
"Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson • Talking about judging people in a recent interview for GQ. If the quote makes it sound like he’s equating being gay with being a terrorist, that’s because Robertson, the patriarch of the “Duck Dynasty” clan, sees homosexuality as immoral. During the interview, he also said this jaw-dropper: “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus.” So yeah, he’s currently suspended from his “Duck Dynasty” gig.

Daniel Minton • Discussing a sting-style arrest they made of a 24-year-old Richmond man—who was wanted for missing court appearances—which the police department got in motion by (get this) launching a fake OK Cupid profile specifically targeting the man, then asking him on a blind date. Minton himself says that the suspect wasn’t dangerous: “He wasn’t wanted for a very violent crime but to the people in the neighborhood where he lives, you know, they want him off the street.”

… when you’re Macaulay Culkin and your friends are a group of talented “anti-folk” musicians, you don’t just laugh about how hilarious a pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band would be. You record a Pizza Underground EP at your house, put on a free show at a trendy Williamsburg bar, and send boxes of pizza crowd surfing over an adoring audience as you sing. For eight minutes.
Macaulay Culkin held a pizza party in honor of his pizza-themed Velvet Undergound cover band this weekend. He’s a Feta Fatale.

In which Fox News tries absurdism on for size. Sample line: "Francis not only panders to enemies and professional grievance mongers, but also attacks his allies. Just as Obama snubs Britain and Israel, Pope Francis swipes at practicing Catholics."
Wince.
EDIT: Here’s a Jesuit priest calling this article the worst of 2013. Don’t get a much better source than that.
