City Paper is not for tourists
Good morning, good people! It’s Friday!
In this space way back on Wednesday, we mentioned—OK, ranted—about O.J. Simpson‘s “acquittal suit,” which, as part of a ridiculously stupid idea, was being offered as a donation to the Smithsonian. The Smithsonian didn’t want it, because what self-respecting institution would?
The Newseum! According to the Washington Post’s Reliable Source, the museum is “in discussions to obtain” the suit.
Seriously, can’t we just burn it?
In related news, the Los Angeles Police Department has apologized to the family of the late Robert F. Kennedy for exhibiting at a homicide investigators conference the tie, shirt and jacket he was wearing when he was gunned down in 1968. Because, yeah, well, duh.
In other news: how not to run a transit agency;
how not to go about obtaining beer from CVS (or anywhere);
how to be like Ezra Klein (if doing 20 blog posts a day doesn’t appeal to you, skip that last one).
Happy birthday, Mayor for Life! And happy Friday!
