Re: “Photo Pit: The Kills play the Riv

Why would you run photos of a woman with pink hair in black and white? It was such a colorful show.

Re: “The New York Times Blows It Again

I actually emailed NYT today about an error in Gail Collins' op-ed "The Man With the Snow Job"…

She writes:
"The blizzard of 1979 is world-famous because Chicago’s snow removal efforts went badly, causing everyone to turn on then-mayor Michael Bilandic, who was kicked out of office six weeks later in the Democratic primary. Coincidentally, there’s a Democratic primary coming up this month, and candidates have been shoveling snow off cars and sidewalks all around the city."

Chicago has nonpartisan elections, so there is no "Democratic primary coming up." The law changed in the 1980s.
