More than one person in the streets of Ferguson has compared what is happening here to the chaotic days of the Birmingham desegregation campaign in 1963. And, like that struggle, the local authorities, long immune to public sentiment, were incapable of understanding how their actions reverberated outside the hermetic world where they held sway—how they looked to the world. That incomprehension was the biggest asset the protesters in Birmingham had. Michael Brown was left lying in the street for hours while a traumatized community stood behind police tape in frustration, grief, and shock: an immobile metaphor for everything that was wrong in Ferguson, Missouri.
New Yorker contributor Jelani Cobb compares the situation in Ferguson to a key moment in civil rights history.

Another shot across the bow of the much-maligned launch of healthcare.gov, which new documents reveal successful signed up just a handful of people in its opening day.

Assuming that 286 doesn’t support Dropbox.

A brilliant new take on New Yorker cartoons

We put these skeletons together to make it look like they’re dancing.

In the “ideas we wish we’d thought of” department: This blog is devoted to taking New Yorker cartoons, stripping out the captions, and replacing them with dialogue that describes, in the most literal fashion possible, what is happening. This is our favorite thing since Garfield Minus Garfield

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. Spot the irony, folks.

Newspapers are kind of dreary, depressed places. I would go the penniless Web route to get practice. You can enter the mainstream so much quicker there.
New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell • Suggesting, during a lecture at Yale, that writers should work for free online to get practice, rather than at newspapers. Gladwell, who once worked at the Washington Post, said that while he had good experiences there, he ultimately felt that newspapers’ lack of profitability makes them less desirable in this regard. How many writers or journalists out there would be willing to take this advice — or are at this very moment? (ht Poynter)
