  • Jesus what a depressing day. Saw the guy on 13th Street this morning, now I’m going home just up the block from this.

    This is a very tangential observation. I don’t mean to make light of this tragedy in any way. When I read the recent pizza post, I noticed that one of the pictured ads to the right of the screen and all of the “See Also” ads were about pizza. The ad that floated in at the top of the page for this pos was Positive Energy Yogi Tea. If it actually does what it’s designed to do, I could use a few sips, and I bet I’m not alone in this.
