But here’s the thing: the other priorities he names— financial reform, the deficit, the education system, infrastructure, job loss, and healthcare—are basically helplessly broken.

Time To Wake Up Young Manhattanite
Deadspin needs to start spinning. It’s kickoff time. Throw out the first pitch. Fire off the starter gun. Ring the bell. Send bunny running down the rail.
twentysomethingtales: I’ve been faithful to my local bakery on île St. Louis since day one in Paris, some three months ago. I’m in there without fail at least three times a week, my order always the same: “Une baguette, s’il vous plaît.” After my first week and five baguettes later (shame), I realized that the little shop is entirely a one-man show.
