Beloved Toronto singing cowboy/mayoral candidate Ben Kerr, RIP

Sarah sez, "Ben Kerr was a Toronto legend, an elderly busker who stood on the downtown corner of Yonge and Bloor Sts nearly every day, rain or shine, crooning into a karaoke machine and wearing a yellow sweatshirt that said 'Better than Viagra!' Every civic election since 1985 he ran for mayor, and usually grabbed a respectible chunk of the popular vote. He died at his home on Friday."


(Thanks, Sarah!)
