Quoted: Rob Ford holds a press conference at a gas station to address his friend’s drug charges

He’s a friend, he’s a good guy, and I don’t throw my friends under the bus. Like I said, he’s straight and narrow.

—A “very surprised” Rob Ford, not quite commenting on the drug charges against buddy and occasional driver Sandro Lisi during a planned media scrum at the most logical locale for discussing serious matters—a gas station parking lot in Etobicoke. After taking three questions, the mayor left to get ready for his two-day trip to Austin, Texas, where waiting reporters are already well-informed about his propensity for scandal. [@nataliealcoba]
