How to Make a Newspaper Cover Out of Hops and Malt

This week's print Washington City Paper is all about beer. And if the text of the cover headline—"The Beer Issue"—didn't make that clear enough, the stuff it's made out of probably did. Art Director Carey Jordan created the issue's logo, cover, and an inside spread out of beer ingredients supplied by 3 Stars Brewing Company (which City Paper contributor Aaron Morrissey had [...]

The Needle: Unoccupied Edition

You Don't Have To Go Home, But You Can't Stay Here: Nothing like some nosy House Republicans to bring a protest to an end.

The Needle: Go Outside Edition

Tiger Blood: A spectacularly irritating, if not actually dangerous, man will soon walk among us.

Good morning, good people! It's Friday!
In this space way back on Wednesday, we mentioned—OK, ranted—about O.J. Simpson's "acquittal suit," which, as part of a ridiculously stupid idea, was being offered as a donation to the Smithsonian. The Smithsonian didn't want it, because what self-respecting institution would?

Fortune magazine has named some folks who might try to get control of the New York Times from the Sulzberger family.
The piece has some likely suspects — David Geffen and Google, among them.
But the most intriguing and, for us locals, scariest of the alleged Times takeoverers?
