Hurricane Michael has become a beast. Just want to know people in its way are safe.
A professional photographer in New York City attempts to pull the perfect apartment scam. He almost gets away with it…until one of his victims turns the tables and locks him out of his own apartment. (8,000 words, but worth the read)
Can we shut the hell up with the Michael Moore posts? Whaddya say, team?
I have mixed feelings about hoopyfrood's Michael Jackson belongs in jail post. On the one hand, I agree with the general "don't editorialize" philosophy and its corollary "save it for a comment in the thread." On the other, this isn't exactly the New York Times and a poster's take on their subject is arguably an integral part of the post. "Letting the link speak for itself", when it involves a news item, is all very well - but perhaps keeping one's opinion out of the front page text is also an exercise in obfuscation and even dishonesty. Has current policy on editorializing changed? ( I speak as a frequent editorializer, I should add. Even though I agree "pedophile of pop", with its dubious inverted commas, and all-capitals IN JAIL!, as well as the idea that everyone is innocent until proven guilty except Michael Jackson, are way too extreme a way of going about it.)
