commented on Toddler Shoots Baby
This is horrible, but I think calling the victim a baby and the shooter a toddler is a bit sensationalist. The shooter was 3. Three year-olds ain't toddling anymore. The victim was 17months- likely could walk.
A better headline would be Young Child Shoots Toddler.

It's part of the new Ken Burns documentary in the making about the Gettysburg Address. There's a whole website devoted to folk reading the address.

commented on Dan Harmon Is Returning to Community: What Do You Think?
Season four was fine, but just fine. It wasn't something I'd recommend to someone. It lacked the multi-leveled potency of the earlier seasons. It was edible, but not amazing food.
@11 Yes, and it's not for everybody.
I look forward to the return of the truest repairman. Please.

commented on If You've Been Waiting for a Chart Explaining the Arrested Development Season 4 Timeline...
Just finished Season Four last night and I don't think it can be evaluated yet. The whole season seems like a set-up for what's to come. The intricate step-by-step unveiling of smaller mysteries ends with a bigger mystery- what happened to Lucille Austero. Season Four was the start of a comedy-mystery and a larger whodunit is to come. The focus episodic focus on each of the characters (all of who end up at Cinco de Quatro- the scene of the crime) is going to make even more sense when the viewer is invited to follow along an unravel what happened to Lucille and why.

commented on Is My Landlord Being Honest Here?
There weren't comments enabled on your original piece, so I want to type here that it brought back a lot of fond memories of my time spent at the Prince of Wales- despite the sad context. Some of the people you quoted were still there then and were people who I enjoyed interacting with on a daily basis. It was no shock that Katherine was by far the most quoted in the piece. She's a quotable lady (and she has a lot to say.) Back then (it wasn't so long ago), my rent was $560 for a studio and that included a fancy-pants Thanksgiving dinner and occasional gifts left on my door (coats, kaleidoscopes, that sort of thing). The place was something of a community center, from what I recall. Both for the crack fans who'd make use of its cavernous stoop and the community clean-up organization (MADCAP) that would give free coffee in exchange for some litter removal (they even provided extendo-claws for non-back-straining conveniece!) once a month. The place seemed too good to be true, so I left before what seemed to be an impending hike hit. I'll have lots of pleasant memories. I'm sad those folk will be disbursed. Thanks for your reporting.
