the Onion

We used to have the Onion (America’s Finest News Source) available for free here in New York, in those little weekly newspaper boxes you see lying around. After the hurricane last year, the supply seems to have dried up. This was a sad event. Not only did I get high quality journalism from the paper, they also had a very nice crossword puzzle for lazy Saturday mornings.

Enterprising individuals have begun reusing the boxes for temporary clothing storage, and some of them have been commandeered for other, not as interesting papers. (New York real estate is valuable, after all).

I don’t often check their website, as it adds to the already crippling amount of distraction that I experience in a day, but this article caught my eye. As a person who finds comfort in the knowledge that the universe will eventually empty out into a cold cinder, I can’t help but approve when others notice the same.
