I love this: This city disbanded its police department 7 years ago. Here’s what happened next. (Thanks, Tym.)
. . . Now, seven years after the old department was booted (though around 100 officers were rehired), the city’s crime has dropped by close to half. Officers host outdoor parties for residents and knock on doors to introduce themselves. It’s a radically different Camden than it was even a decade ago. Here’s how they did it. . . .
I hate this: What Chechnya is doing to its LGBT sons and daughters . . . with the full support of Vladimir Putin. Watch it June 30 on HBO . . . or online as part of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival anytime between June 11-June 20 once you chip in $9 and sign up. The film is called “Welcome to Chechnya.” Something happens near the end that’s so brave it made me cry.
Those of you who’ve joined me in gambling on PRKR — with money you can truly afford to lose — may be heartened by this analysis. Albeit not entirely independent (on the last page, it discloses it was paid for). And based on 59 million shares outstanding, which is probably half the number of fully-diluted shares by the time they get their huge settlement (if ever). But even so, the upside seems real.
Finally, as promised yesterday — from a guy (me!) who delights in eating expired food — this helpful video on making even fresh food, like bananas, last longer:
Quote of the Day
I sincerely believe … that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.~Thomas Jefferson
