Is Bruce Toll suffering from selective male Alzheimer's? Why is it he can't remember things suddenly?
Thought it was only with Philly Magazine as per yesterday's great news that Pig Boy Tierney wallowed in a big fat bonus, but Toll seems to have a lack of recall with EVERYONE? Wow. Who knew? Actually, let's just call a spade a spade shall we? What pure, unmitigated bullshit. This guy knows where all the bodies are buried. And where every last scheckel is.

Fox29: PNI Execs Got Bonuses
Report: Newspapers Owe City $450K In Taxes
PHILADELPHIA - The owners of the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Daily News are seeking bankruptcy protection but still handed out bonuses to top executives.
And published reports claim the company owes the city of Philadelphia $450,000 in taxes.
Fox 29's Julie Kim reported that those who work at the paper feel, in a word, hoodwinked because the newspaper union voted to delay $25-a-week pay raises when company officials approached them in crisis last year.
The presses keep rolling at the city's two largest papers, but those who chronicle the city's ups and downs are roiling in resentment.
Bill Ross, of the Philadelphia Newspaper Guild, described feeling "betrayed, disappointed, outraged."
Errr Brian, what's that again about not wanting to los your "F*ck*ng house"?
