This is gold: an exclusive interview with the Arizona Zoo Panther.

MH: So tell me about the attack from your perspective. What was it like to …

CT: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Attack? What “attack”?

First of all, I was chilling at home when some white lady broke in. What would you do if someone came into your house with a weapon? This is a clear case of Stand Your Ground! She was armed and attacking me!

Brilliant.

Hark! A Vagrant is an online comic (now archived) about odd and unknown elements of history. I love the illustrations and the subject matter, and I feel like I stumbled over this site years ago but forgot about it at some point. (via)

But by the hand of God, you and the people running your shop are the most ahistorical, smegmatically incompetent and fuckstumbling stewards of an essential informational resource since, well, since Wall Street analysts and their slobbering chain-newspaper fetch-monkeys drove mainstream journalism into a ditch.

This quote isn’t the point of the article, but I just love the way David Simon insults Jack Dorsey over his ethically bankrupt stewardship of Twitter. Even if you don’t know what’s going on, the whole thing is worth a read for the wordsmithing alone.

Over at Deadspin, now that the football season has begun, so has the annual NFL Dick Joke Jamboroo. Always a highlight of the season, even if I’m only seeing games peripherally.

Gary Younge, a writer and reporter based in the UK, interviews Richard Spencer about racism and slavery, and totally skewers him and all of his asinine beliefs. This is a teaching moment about how to deal with trolls, racists, and bigots. This is better than the video of him getting punched.

So it begins.

I walked up the street to the front of Union Station yesterday to peep out what I could see. The main room of the station building was closed off for a huge banquet of some kind. Out in front, people hawked Trump tchotchkes, all made in China (I checked) amidst huge lines of porta-potties. Here and there, red-hatted supporters wandered around the station, asking for directions.

One of my coworkers said it felt like Paris in ’42 as the German army rumbled through the outskirts of the city. It feels to me like the circus has pulled into town, and clowns are just going to keep pouring out of the cars.

Buried amidst his weekly NFL wrapup (and poop story compendium), this gem from Drew Magary:

Regardless, the rest of the country needs to hurry the fuck up and be like Colorado. I could easily survive the Trump Years with cheap and available weed all around me. JUST THE MELLOW I NEED.
