On No One Knows How to Get to JFK from Williamsburg (OR DO THEY?)

@coleslaw I'm pretty sure Alex McCord is the saddest horse in the city.

On Many People Taking Not-So-Serious Book Far Too Seriously

Man, these articles are so infuriating! It's almost like those authors chose contrarian views on a popular subject for pageviews and attention-seeking purposes!

On 'Blue Valentine': New Trailer

The handheld camera work in the opening shot is pretty shitty, which let me know immediately that this movie is going to be SUPER authentic.

On How To Fix A Chili Dog

That guy's site is amazing. I love the dry, no-frills way he writes, as though he wrote the "book" at the behest of his captors in a North Korean prison camp.

On Who is the Greatest Diva of the Last 25 Years? We Offer Scientific Proof!

Jordin Sparks made the list but Kelly Clarkson and Shirley Bassey didn't?! FLAWED. Anyways, I still agree with your conclusion, though I worry that indeed, the Superbowl performance may have weighed too heavily.

On The Dementia Bonus: Football as Black Servitude

I'm jumping in here to echo the sentiments of quite a few other commentators here. It seems as thought you came up with a conclusion to draw, then pursued the anecdotes and statistics you felt would support your point. It's no surprise that institutional racism is apparent in sports, because it's yet to be eliminated in pretty much every corner of our society. But the damage athletes do to their bodies affects all of them, not just certain races. If anything, the most salient bit that you touched on only briefly is the issue of college sports. For people to risk serious damage to their bodies to generate profit for others without being allowed to share in those rewards is far closer to slavery than anything that happens in the NFL. However, it's also an injustice that is color blind.

On Twitter vs. Google: Which Gets You Better Info, Really?

Try as I might, I cannot find the "web history" feature on google. Does anyone have a direct link?

On Letters to the Editors of Women's Magazines

These are the best thing on the internet. I will buy the book when it eventually comes out.
