I’m glad people are organizing to do something about this problem. Seems like a positive way to make everyone more aware. Now if only there were some way to get drunk girls to stop walking home alone in the middle of the night. Get a clue, folks, or http://www.rightrides.org/!

I guess that could have been me. I was accepted to the Class of 2008 for law school, but opted not to go. I decided this whole internet thing might pan out for me. Jury’s still out on that one ;)

People! What is with women walking home alone so late at night? Get a clue! And a car service! From within Williamsburg to Williamsburg or Greenpoint it should only be about $6, or roughly the cost of one drink. And who carries 20 grand in their purse around Greenpoint. The crime blotter really makes me lose faith in people, or at least lose faith in the intelligence of humans.
the church of stop shopping
Several factors combined (namely a ridiculous credit card bill and the example set by mother, aunt and grandmother to reduce their purchases) caused me to blurt out in full witness of new friends, at a clothing swap no less, “I’m not buying anything new until September 1.” Um, what?! I’m not talking about household essentials or necessary foodstuffs, but clothes and shoes...

The plastic buttons we push
therealjanelle: superamit: I earn my living—the food I eat, the apartment I sleep in, the books I read, etc. — by pushing plastic buttons all day long. It’s the same with most of my friends. I push a lot of buttons. There’s a trick to pushing them in the proper order, but no one way is “right” and everyone pushes their buttons differently. In fact, the order in which they push their buttons...
therealjanelle: anyone have any do-not-miss recommendations for where to eat & drink in baltimore? if there is any must-see art, architecture or other sights, please include those as well. from my d.c.-based brother: the aquarium is good. brewer’s art (www.thebrewersart.com) is a cool place. good beer, good fries. the basement is cool, lots of bricks and what-have-you. ...

Why print media is failing
icanmakewaffles: abangupjob: wtf, folks, wtf? I still have not gotten this week’s New York magazine in my mailbox. There’s no way print media can keep up with online forms of delivery if the USPS cannot, ahem, deliver. What gives? Is this the fault of slow Brooklyn mail delivery? Did you get your copy this week? P.S. I have no reason to complain to NYmag’s circulation dept. as my subscription...

The scent of Alinea
courtneyc: “The whole point of that aroma is not to flavor the food,” he said. “This is what happens to me personally when we set oak leaves on fire—I’m transported to my youth, raking the leaves in front of my house, jumping into the leaves, and setting them on fire.” He went on, “What we try to do is really search out that kind of emotional trigger.” Before going to Chicago, I reread this New...
