im not saying it's wholly good or bad, but a consequence of television becoming a 9 episodes per season medium and not a 26 episodes per season medium means we'll probably never see a "fuck it, the enterprise finds a sleazy 60's casino planet" episode of star trek again

Instead of perpetuating environmental racism by forcing apartment dwellers to live on large arterials roads with horrific air quality from car and truck traffic, cities should emulate Chicago, where many quiet streets include numerous small apartment buildings.

Mayor Adams is calling for cuts to CUNY, while increasing the NYPD budget. Austerity at work.

BREAKING: I have uncovered evidence of rampant plagiarism in transactional law. Using sophisticated computer techniques, I have determined that transactional attorneys *routinely* copy and paste from other people’s contracts without attribution.

lefties cut Fetterman some slack because he has a good vibe, but they also do it because he brutally crushed the party establishment's handpicked future pharma lobbyist

Update: voters did want this
If you want a Senator who runs as a Socialist, feeds the GOP attack ads, & didn't help with infrastructure, I'M NOT YOUR GUY. That's not how you beat Republicans. I know because I've actually done it & will again. I'm a normal Democrat who supports jobs & wins elections. #PASen

Conor Lamb vacated a tough swing seat so he could run a red-baiting Senate campaign that lost by 25 points to a large wet rockabilly but it's the left that doesn't take the Republican threat seriously.

Biked home tonight in uniform (following traffic laws). I stopped at a red light, waited, the light cycled, but I still had a red. I realized it was on a sensor, and wouldn’t change. It’s hard to follow traffic laws on streets that were designed without my existence in mind.

As someone who's spent years railing about zoning at meetings in exclusionary suburbs, it's wild to see the Biden Administration succinctly outline its disastrous effects and call for reform at the national level. Feels like things really are changing.
