People named their Sexiest Man Alive this week. I follow this ridiculous distinction closely because it nearly always brings with it an installment of Daniel Ortberg’s reimagination of the award. Here is last year’s and here is this year’s.

That horrible accident in New York City last spring where a car plowed through a crosswalk and killed a few kids just got worse: the driver has been found dead, with suicide suspected as the cause of death. [NYT]

I am so hoping this is somehow fake or blown out of proportion: this women’s track team can’t practice on their own track because they are distracting the football players?!?!?!?!?
