CHAPTER V - OREGON TALE - Medium — A gang of SWAT toughs rips through the woods, weaving in and out of conifers and vines. They creep slowly, side by side, in camouflage ski masks and safari hats. Black gloves. Dark shades. Kevlar vests. A symphony of semiautomatic projectiles. Pistols pop, peppering the soundscape.

CATHOLICS NEED NOT APPLY — Who knew that jury selection for a capital case could be such a pain in the toilet? For those of us who'd like to see the kid dipped in a fryolator pronto, the death penalty trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev already feels neverending. And it hasn't even begun.

BOSTON TROLLING (THE COMPLETE SERIES) — BY CHRIS FARAONE, KENNETH LIPP & JONATHAN RILEY Nobody at either day of last year's debut Boston Calling partied with much expectation of privacy. With an army of media photographers, selfie takers, and videographers recording every angle of the massive concert on Government Center, it was inherently clear that music fans were in the middle of a massive photo opp.

CHINATOWN FAMILIES WEATHER HOUSING STORM — Photos by Chris Faraone Welcome to 103 Hudson Street, a beaten red brick row house on the southeast edge of Chinatown. Just a toss away from the I-93 South lane, two of the apartments have wooden planks crudely fixed in the windows; another two have signs that say, "We Shall Not Be Moved."

CHAPTER IV - OREGON TALE - Medium — The story behind a particular old Grants Pass image has stuck with me since I spent a week reporting there last spring. In it, a lumber crew is returning from a grueling harvest on the high ridges of Josephine County, their stone cold poses harder than the woods around them.

THE FIGHT CONTINUES FOR LIQUOR LICENSES IN COMMUNITIES OF COLOR — Image by Brittany Grabowski When the Massachusetts legislature greenlight new liquor licenses last session for certain Boston neighborhoods that lack adequate entertainment options, it was a cause for celebration. Residents of areas like Roxbury, with its 15 permits (including 10 held by packies) to 131 in Back Bay, rejoiced at the prospect of more places to sip wine at dinner close to home.

4 Mile March Boston — Images by Chris Faraone DigBoston is a tiny outlet with a small budget in a medium-size city that happens to wield a major influence on a giant America.

CHAPTER III - OREGON TALE - Medium — After zigzagging south out of Grants Pass and hugging hilly roads for 20 minutes, I snap west and head toward the site of the eviction on Slate Creek a month earlier. The sweeping canopy of the Siskiyou wilderness grows thicker, the air thinner as I arrive in Wilderville, an unincorporated community comprising a post office and a general store on the rocky rim of Josephine County.

THINGS WHITE PEOPLE CAN THINK ABOUT NEXT TIME THEY’RE STUCK ON I-93 — Believe it or not, there are some invigorating activities for commuters to engage in while stuck in traffic around here. You know, other than masturbating and listening to sports radio morons spew thinly veiled racism in between rounds of praise for black athletes.

THE GLORIOUS RETURN OF ‘ATLAS RIFFED’ TO CAMBRIDGE — I spoke with Boston-based lefty comic Matthew Filipowicz the last time he and Josh Bolotsky brought their "Mystery Science Theater 3000″-style evisceration of the first Atlas Shrugged film to the Hub, back in November 2013.

When sports fans do thing where they close eyes, tilt heads slightly back, nod slowly, and repeat same dumb prediction over and over.
