Lowering the Bar KABC in Los Angeles reported on April 5 that our heroes in the TSA had successfully prevented another innocent disabled person from flying. This time it was a stroke victim in a wheelchair who couldn't answer questions about her expired driver's license because—also due to the stroke—she is mute. Sherry Wright said she was with her sister Heidi and tried to explain for her, having brought along her sister's Social Security card and papers from the DMV (and possibly also a state ID card). She said that not only did the agent reject her explanation, he or she rudely insisted on hearing it from Heidi herself. When she was unable to respond, being mute, they were turned away, and Heidi had to make an eight-hour bus trip instead. I once stupidly forgot my driver's license when on my way home for the holidays, and didn't realize this until I needed it at the airport. Lowering the Bar

The Awl - Be Less Stupid On one side of The Divide—the gap in the justice system between the rich and the poor that provides the title for Matt Taibbi’s brilliant and enraging new book—financiers and other wealthy people commit egregious crimes, including laundering drug money, and rarely face jail time. Prosecutors worry about "collateral consequences" before filing charges. On the other side is Andrew Brown, who lives in a neighborhood obsessively monitored by police and is arrested for standing outside his own building talking to a friend. The Awl - Be Less Stupid
The Boston Globe has published an interesting photo that uses the Leaflet mapping platform to provide an interactive graphic of survivors of the bombing of the Boston Marathon. One year after the tragic bomb explosion at the Boston Marathon, The Boston Globe invited survivors, police, firefighters, EMTs, doctors, nurses and runners back to the finish line on Boylston Street to pose for a group photo. The resulting One Year, One City photo is a powerful testimony to the resilience of the people of Boston. By using the Leaflet mapping platform the Boston Globe has created an interactive photo which you can pan around and in which you can zoom in on individuals in the picture. Google Maps Mania

Open Culture “Our independence from Spanish domination did not put us beyond the reach of madness,” said Gabriel García Márquez in his 1982 Nobel Prize acceptance speech. García Márquez, who died yesterday at the age of 87, refers of course to all of Spain’s former colonies in Latin America and the Caribbean, from his own Colombia to Cuba, the island nation whose artistic struggle to come to terms with its history contributed so much to that art form generally known as “magical realism,” a syncretism of European modernism and indigenous art and folklore, Catholicism and the remnants of Amerindian and African religions.
