“Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine."

More to come, I guess.

“Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Mayor Rob Ford admitted at a surprise news conference just after noon.

“I am not an addict,” he told the media.

“I wasn’t lying. You didn’t ask the correct questions,” Ford explained to why the admission was so long in coming.

Ford said he smoked crack about a year ago. “I don’t even remember.”

The Toronto Star has a nice little Twitter feed going, though nothing new so far.
