The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box.

My people getting it!

While working as an electrician at Windows on the World, in 2001, Konstantin Petrov documented the banalities of the World Trade Center. Nick Paumgarten writes:

A new little project I’m starting. Thought I would share it with ya’ll if you are interested.
For my first recipe I thought I would do one that I already love - this bourbon banana bread. Who doesn’t love banana bread? So many memories of my mom making early in the morning; the smell getting all of us kids up out of bed. It seems fitting to bake this for the start of the school year.
I have it baking in the oven right now, and I will post pictures of the finished product later (I may have forgotten to take pics of the process).
My house already smells like heaven…
