Long form sports journalism looks at Anthony Gatto.
Why did Anthony Gatto, the greatest juggler alive — and perhaps of all time — back away from his art to open a construction business?

Any lawyers want to chime in: what is the standard for reckless endangerment or negligence? seems like this should at least be misdemeanor level and/or revoking of one's license (driving and/or gun). Take some responsibility #GunSafety

YouTube is recommending Enya's greatest hits for me. WTF is wrong with YouTube or me?
There should be an easy way to see which past viewings led to the recommendation and a switch to remove them from the training set (ex: if I sent a joke video to a friend of "The Final Countdown" and don't want similar vids rec'd to me in the future). 
Amazon has something like this so it won't rec items based on gifts given to other people

#GunSafety is bucking the national trend in Missouri. Ubiquity <> safety. Short-circuiting the permit process just means more 'bad' guys have guns.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman's death was not tragic.
This is a semantic argument. His death was sad and sudden. For those close to him it is a tragedy. For those of us who appreciated his work it is a loss that requires a moment to process and then move on.

Slipping in the tub and dying of concussion is tragic.

Dying in an auto-crash caused by mechanical failure of a part within tolerance of testing is tragic. We all accept this level of risk in exchange for the ability to travel.

Dying from e.coli or salmonella contracted from spinach or eggs purchased at a supermarket when the contamination is not due to systematic laxity is tragic. We accept the risk that food inspection is not performed on 100% of product.

A cop getting shot to death during a routine traffic stop is tragic

But a grown adult with wealth, fame, and a capable network of family and co-workers who decides not to kick but to buy an illegal drug, shoot it in his arm, and dies..  that is not tragic. He did it. It's sad that his judgement was so bad. But I'm not going to shed a tear.

In which everyone acknowledges there was not enough upfront regulation and fee collection from the gas drillers. It results in a backdoor subsidy to fossil fuel producers
