@A Snood Mood Yeah when she said she hasn't seen any headlines since late May, I went and looked to see when Tiffany Sedaris passed away and yeah, that's probably why.
I highly recommend listening to the tale of Adrian Schoolcraft, a former NYPD cop who recorded his superior officers encouraging him to stop and frisk. He refused to do it. His story confirms that the problem is coming from the top.
Horace Gifford's work reminds me very much of the Sea Ranch style. So much so that I thought I was looking at photos of Sea Ranch. Lovely work.

Dear The Awl,
I know that you have your site auto-refresh to keep up your page-view numbers or whatever. But when I'm mid-way through a video on your site and it refreshes of its own accord it is incredibly frustrating.
