@ambitious: The logic or relevance of this comment aside: CAN WE PLEASE stop with the fucking buggy/buggy whip comparison!? Come up with a new metaphor. That one's trite and unoriginal. » 10/08/09 11:54am 10/08/09 11:54am

@Mohamed Ndiaye-Kingué: You're kidding, right? Regardless of what you think of their respective personalities, they both run (quite) profitable magazines. That's not generally what's considered a poor performer, in American Capitalism. » 9/18/09 10:56am 9/18/09 10:56am

@Airvault: This is the most irresponsible crap. Posting all of this information on the Internet before the guy has even been ARRESTED, let alone charged or convicted.

So, there's no denying that the WSJ is having an ethical problem here. A particularly egregious one. But does anyone else find Gawker's attempts at policing others a bit...ah...ridiculous? » 8/28/09 11:46am 8/28/09 11:46am

@cheshirecatfish: She seems to have bought herself a raft of these brand-new shirts of old bands...a kind of proto-punk starter kit. Look for her to soon be wearing, I'd say, the Clash, or the Germs, or, if we're lucky the X-Ray Spex. » 8/11/09 5:48pm 8/11/09 5:48pm
