  • 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.
