Look At All This Nasty Fat!

Nothing really turned me on this extended weekend (Monday was a holiday for NT). Carol Marbin Miller keeps firing on all cylinders. Andrew Marra's story about a 16-year-old murder case was interesting as hell, too. But I'm going with Daphne Duret's article, also in the Post, about a drunk mother assaulting her 12-year-old son outside a Winn-Dixie Stuart. According to the arrest report, the mother "turned to her son and told him that everything was his fault and he was a weak piece of (expletive)" before attacking the boy physically and calling him "fat" and "weak."

The story resonated with me because I always hate to see mothers yell and smack their children around in grocery stores. I was so moved that I drove to up to Stuart to find the family and, thankfully, found them in peaceful repose. I even took this picture:

Bad Credit

And this in from unofficial Pulp correspondent Wyatt Olson:

“How about a companion category to your Story of the Day? Perhaps you could call it Stifle of the Day. Case in point: The Sentinel's choke on the Martin Lee Anderson beating video. The story covered the front page of Saturday's Herald, but nary a graf was to be found in the Sentinel, despite the video's release making national news on Friday.

Sure, this story was Carol Marbin Miller's baby, but the Sentinel's blinkered approach is hardly a service to readers. Not that the Herald is above the same thing. As the Sentinel made hay about the FEMA rip-offs in Miami-Dade County after the 2004 hurricanes, the paper of record in that county never dug into that story. Strange thing is, the editors of both papers routinely feel the need to send reporters for day-late follows of picayune stories published by the competitor.”

It’s just more evidence pointing to the fact that newspapers are way too territor

ial, petty, and stingy when it comes to dishing out credit or sharing big news broken by local competi

tors, large and small. And all it does is cheat readers.

Shooting Harry

I thought y'all might want to see how easy it is to shoot Harry Whittington in the face.

It's just a joke, anonymous. Rent Monster's Ball and you'll understand it immediately. Or perhaps not.
