The Washington Post is running a 12-part series on the unsolved 2001 murder of Chandra Levy.
Then-Congressman Gary Condit became a suspect in the case, in part because after she disappeared he flagrantly lied to the police about his relationship with Levy. Though Condit denied to police that he had a romantic relationship with Levy, “D.C. police found a pair of black panties stained with semen. Prosecutors wanted to know if the semen belonged to Condit or if Chandra was seeing another man. The DNA from Condit’s saliva was compared with the DNA on the panties. It was a match.”
Yet even today, Condit seems to remain angry at the police and especially at the media. “I never counted on them wanting to focus all this attention on me,” Condit told the Post. “I’ve been around politics a long time and really never felt that the press was as brutal and as incompetent as they were going to be.”
Poor guy, it really makes you feel sorry for him.

The Clintons’ so-called charitable enterprise has served as a vehicle to launder money and to enrich family friends.
Years ago, I lived in Montana, a land of purple sunsets, clear streams, and snowflakes the size of silver dollars drifting through the cold air. There were no speed limits and you could legally drive drunk. My small apartment in Missoula had little privacy. In order to write, I rented an off-season fishing cabin on Rock Creek, a one-room place with a bed and a bureau. I lacked the budget for a desk. My idea was to remove a sliding door from a closet in my apartment and place it over a couple of hastily cobbled-together sawhorses.
Average exam score, in a SUNY-Fredonia study, for students who only listened to a podcast of their professor’s lecture:
Boys in Taiwan are likelier than girls to vomit in order to lose weight.
Hundreds of women in yoga pants marched through Barrington, Rhode Island, to defend their right to wear the garment, and Trump vowed to sue every woman accusing him of sexual assault. “I look so forward to doing that,” he said.

"She never thanked me, never looked at me—melted away into the miserable night, in the strangest manner I ever saw. I have seen many strange things, but not one that has left a deeper impression on my memory than the dull impassive way in which that worn-out heap of misery took that piece of money, and was lost."
