It was a stupid thing to do and incredibly lazy and absolutely wrong.
New Yorker blogger and author Jonah Lehrer • Apologizing for duplicating his material on his New Yorker blog from multiple other sources, including a post called “Why Smart People Are Stupid,” a recent post of his that went viral, which discussed why otherwise intelligent people make stupid mistakes.

Be kind rewind: Kindness book author says he lied about drive-by shooting

  • claim Hitchhiker Ray Dolin alleged his arm was wounded in Glasgow, Montana, by a man in a pickup truck in a drive-by shooting.
  • retraction Dolin, who is writing a memoir called Kindness In America, has since admitted to authorities that he actually shot himself. source

 » Guess we won’t be able to trust his memoir: Dolin’s done an excellent job of undermining his entire book, especially the “nonfiction” part. If this guy can’t be kind to himself, what does that say about the rest of us? Next you’re gonna tell us that Forest Boy isn’t real … Oh God No.

'Occupy All Streets' is our way of reminding people that there is change to be made everywhere, not just on Wall Street. At this time we have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement.
A spokesperson for Rocawear • Discussing the Jay-Z-backed company’s plan to sell the “Occupy Wall Street”-aping shirts the rapper has recently started wearing … without a plan plan to offer any sort of monetary support to the movement for riffing on their slogan. The irony is painful.
