Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

  • DCist’s week? Oh, no big deal. Just an earthquake, a hurricane, mid-week flash flooding and an epic fail on the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. (Even the beer was against us!)
  • Gothamist's readers felt the quake, too, and so far its quake story is just a little more popular than its Hurricane Irene stories.
  • Chicagoist’s readers were very opinionated about Chicago Public Schools’ plan to add iPads to classrooms through a state grant program. Also, Mayor Rahm Emanuel touted his first 100 days in office and he even took the train to work.
  • Austinist painted Rick Perry as a gay rights activist (check out their photoshop work and you'll see what I'm saying).
  • SFist is hosting a contentious debate about whether NorCal or SoCal get to claim Fresno. We can't let them decide this one for us. Make your voices heard, SoCalians!
  • We loved to hate the Studio City woman fighting the good fight against lost kitty posters in her neighborhood.
