Here, in order of priority, is what really gets the goat of one little girl from Toronto:

1. Spiders, for their webs are icky and sticky.

2. Toronto mayor Rob Ford. He is, according this little Torontonian, "not doing the job that he's supposed to."

Her full grievance is posted below. The second voice is her mother's.

We have heard your complaints. And they are hilarious -- especially this one from a little girl from Toronto who had thoughts on spiders... and the city's mayor:

Over the weekend we installed a popup complaints booth at the Wolfsonian FIU to coincide with the Power of Design Festival (co-presented by WLRN) centered on the theme of complaints. The concept was simple: Step inside our sound-resistant kiosk, speak into the microphone and gripe.

No Room To Run On Miami Sidewalks

About 500 people gathered recently outside one of the only green spaces downtown: the 1300 block of Brickell Avenue.  They were the Brickell Run Club, all decked out in running shoes and workout shorts, ready to go for a run.

Once every week they run through the city. Some trips start on the corner of Southwest 13th Street and Brickell Avenue, then stretch past the Rickenbacker Causeway and back. But distance isn't the runners' only challenge. Frankie Ruiz, the club's founder, says it's hard for runners, bikers and pedestrians get through the city on foot.
