Speaking of sad, the New York Times' Mireya Navarro writes that In New York, Having a Job, or 2, Doesn’t Mean Having a Home. Patrick LaForge there explained, "Some people in New York are homeless despite holding one or more jobs -- their stories.” Jim Sterngold at the Wall Street Journal wrote, "Is your bank teller homeless? powerful, sad story on working homeless.” Josh Sternberg from Digiday tweeted: “'Without low-income housing, it’s a maze with no way out.' Devastating article.”
Also from the Times, Campbell Robertson reports from New Orleans: Judge Throws Out Officers’ Convictions in Killings After Hurricane Katrina. John Schwartz there wrote, “Convictions of police overturned in the horrifying Danziger Bridge case in New Orleans; #campbellnyt has it.” Stan Alcorn at NPR said, “Worst trolls ever: prosecutors' online comments result in new trial for cops convicted of post-Katrina shootings.” John Gramlich with Roll Call explained, “More trouble for #DOJ Civil Rights Division? Judge faults career attorney Karla Dobinski for online comments.”
There's a headline in the New York Times - The Man With Pink Hair - from Thomas Friedman that's not as much fun as you might think. Sam Stein at the Huffington Post called it, “A Tom Friedmanian lede if there ever was." Ivan Lajara with The Daily Freeman explained, “There is a man with pink hair therefore Syria where is my paycheck?" Jill Lawrence from the National Journal tweeted: “Friedman: Can we leverage Putin’s intervention to help forge Syria ceasefire, end Iran nuke program? Worth a try." Michael Grunwald from Time Magazine added, this quote from the story: "’Barack Obama once had black hair. But his is gray now, not pink.’ Incredibly, this awful column is basically right."
