The WSJ has a story about the cottage industry around Daft Punk  replica helmets. And oh yes, there’s a stipple print. 
(Side note: Their new album is pretty awesome if you haven’t heard.)

Ed Koch, the iconic former New York City mayor who died Friday, has some of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl’s last words — “My father is Jewish. My mother is Jewish. I am Jewish.” — on his tombstone. Koch explained his reasoning for doing this in a 2011 blog post for The Huffington Post: “I believe those words should be part of the annual services on the Jewish High Holiday of Yom Kippur, and should be repeated by the congregants.”
Pearl was brutally murdered by al-Qaeda terrorists after being kidnapped in Pakistan in 2002, with his death videotaped and used as a propaganda tool. He died on February 1, 2002, eleven years ago exactly — making Koch’s usage of Pearl’s words symbolic in another way.

thepeoplesrecord:

In 1983 there were 50 different corporations that had control over our media, today there are only six: Viacom, Comcast, Disney, TimeWarner, CBS, and News Corporation. 

Is anyone surprised by this?

For what it’s worth: The article is is linked over here if you’d like to read (I’ve skimmed through and it seems to be focusing on changes to the tax law and the effects they will have on various groups of people). But here’s something of note: With the piece, there is a link specifically to an interactive infographic that describes how the tax law changes would affect people in most income ranges. It goes as low as “single unemployed person” making less than $10,000 per year. Here’s what it looks like:

It’s not a situation where they don’t think low-income people exist. It’s just that they were showing one set of examples in the top one, and left the more granular examples for the interactive graphic. That doesn’t explain why the interactive graphic got flat orange stick figures and the one above got frowny-faced upper-middle-class people, but the WSJ has people making under $180k covered — at least online.

So the Wall Street Journal ran a story about a nudist organization, the American Association for Nude Recreation, and its efforts to draw corporate sponsorship by pitching itself to companies that have “Naked” in their brand or product name. Which is fine, albeit weird. But the real problem with this story? The stipple print. If you’re gonna stipple print a nudist, they better be naked.

It was like pulling teeth to get information yesterday…a lot of senators were frustrated. And you pick up major newspapers in the country and you find details not shared with you.
Senator Lindsey Graham • Voicing frustration within the Senate GOP caucus that the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal received more detailed briefing on the Libya attacks than did congress. Senator Bob Corker called it “the most useless, worthless briefing I have attended in a long time,” and John McCain accused the Obama administration of holding the Senate in “disdain.” The closed-door briefing in question presumably also included Senate Democrats, but none have made hay about it in the way Senate GOPers have.
