I started working at Gawker.com in April of last year, and ever since, I’ve received a constant barrage of always furious, often antisemitic, and rarely coherent emails to my inbox. Reading these is, truthfully, the single best part of my day.
The US National Park Service was founded 100 years ago today, at a time when less than 35 percent of Americans had electricity at home.
