In addition to the millions this guy should get, someone needs to hold the officers accountable for withholding evidence. No statute of limitations, no blue code of silence. They are responsible for this guy spending 24 damn years in prison.
A New York man, freed Tuesday after spending more than two decades in state prison, would not have been convicted if vital evidence had not been withheld by investigators, the man's lawyer alleged. "Where the hell was this evidence all these ...

Yeah... OK. If they hadn't given Bush cover fire for eight fucking years of vacationing and brush-clearing, they might have a hint of a leg to stand on.

Another fine bit of watercolor loveliness from the brush of Dave Johnson.
 
Just posted on the Contra Costa Times and Mercury News websites' "eat.drink.play." sections, a new painting of an artichoke, also bound for this Sunday's print editions. Looser than previous versions. (and I like the little zigzag border that G+ has added to the preview below!)
The original edible flower, the glorious artichoke, has arrived and Castroville is abuzz with the harvest.

"Adolf Hitler said a lot of things in his rise to power. None of them sounded like mainstream or progressive Democratic rhetoric."
Another paranoid plutocrat compares Democrats to Hitler, betraying his utter ignorance about Hitler.

Just bantered on Twitter with Tom Tomorrow and John Hodgman. My life may be complete.

After the disaster in Oso, Wash., Gov. Inslee is asking the federal government for around $10 million to rebuild homes and replace what was in them. I am all for the government being there as a safety net, in fact it's one of the reasons why I detest the GOP trying to destroy it. HOWEVER: There was a study in 1999 that predicted there could very well be such an event and perhaps that was not the best place to put a house. No one who lives in the town says they were made aware of the report, but my guess is, if they were, they would have screamed bloody murder about some scientists trying to destroy their freedom. And there was very recently heavy logging on the bluff above town, which has been shown to weaken a hillside and make it particularly prone to deadly slides like this. You can't have it both ways. You can't resist entreaties by scientists to protect you, while then asking for help once that terrible thing has actually happened. Also, doesn't anyone have insurance?

OK, so I'mma be a dick here. Who the fuck needs an APP to tell them when street sweeping is? There are signs. Right there. On the sidewalk. If you, you know, look around. Also, the writer points out that, since "no one knows" what those warning lights on the dash are, this can help. Hey, guess what: Your car came with an OWNERS MANUAL. You might consider looking there, since it's in your fucking glove box and again, I can't stress this enough, it CAME WITH THE CAR. <endrant.
Owning a car in this city isn't easy. The hills, the pedestrians, the bikers, the other drivers... oh god, just thinking about it is stressing us out. And the hardest part of owning a…

Wow. Fascinating stuff.
This month Phaidon published elBulli 2005-2011, a seven-volume tome that obsessively chronicles more than 750 recipes served during the last six years of Ferran Adrià’s world-famous restaurant. It offers a revealing glimpse into virtually every aspect of the team’s creative process. The wildly inventive dishes at El Bulli weren’t merely...

I love the idea that photos were not descriptive or evocative enough, they needed models.

Maybe better suited for your roku or appletv, but a great show, lovely setting.
