On How Bookstores Survive

In Seattle they're doing it by ... catering to Amazon employees, apparently?

On Prudish Child Files Suit

"saw their shuffleboards replaced by washboard abs"

So wait, they oldsters were literally playing shuffleboard on the sculpted torsos of the exotic dancers? Kinky!

On "A day doesn’t go by where you don’t hear about more bank layoffs and branch closings."

"On top of that, you hear politicians from the president on down blaming 'Wall Street and bankers' for the crisis, as if they were all the same, when in reality it was only five or six individuals very high up at places like Bear Stearns and Lehman Bros. who share responsibility." Haha, sure?

On Meet The Awl

Hey there's no footnote to go with the asterisk on "whatever founders do all day". I guess I'm going to assume it's "roll around in big piles of money"???

On Ask Polly: My Boyfriend Is Secretly Catfishing!

Not really saying anything that different than Polly here, but: even if you ignore this as a betrayal of you, or if you decide/he convinces you that this doesn't really constitute cheating and it doesn't have anything to do with you, think of what it means about him. It's such a cruel thing to do to these women who are presumably investing a lot of emotional energy in this (unless it's a double-catfish!), and he's doing it to selfishly feed his emotional needs or just to laugh at the poor marks. Would you really want to build a life with someone who does that for fun?

On It's A Good Thing 'Cathy' Is Already Dead Because This News About Chocolate Would Kill Her

Cathy's not dead! They just ended her strip! They ... they sent her to a comic farm upstate, is what my mom told me.

On On "Dawson," on "Dexter," on "Damages": The Artists and Art of TV Shows

I'm a bad Baltimorean/museum-goer for not being able to say this for sure, but I'm pretty sure that scene in the Wire was taken in the BMA, Baltimore's (quite good!) (mostly) modern art museum. Which is I suppose another art-on-TV category, when museum sites and the art contained therein become a pre-made backdrop for a shot, rather than a dressed set.
