Somehow it takes a week to send a copy of The New Yorker to Minnesota. They must be mailing the magazine from Tegucigalpa. But anyway I finally got last week's issue in the mail yesterday. So I wanted to be the last person on the planet to point out that David Grann's piece about a Texas man who was executed in 2004 for crimes that in all likelihood he did not commit is remarkable. If you're too lazy to read the whole damn thing (it's very long), then at least watch this video of Grann discussing the shortcomings of the original arson investigation that resulted in Cameron Todd Willingham's death sentence.

I also found this story amazing and jawdropping. Sadly, I was coming on this blog to mock the proprietor's lack of attendance at the USA soccer game, but it all just seems so pointless now.

Sad indeed.

The game started too early. I was still in bed.
