Clear It With Sidney

Notes on journalism for the common good, by Lindsay Beyerstein

#Sidney's Picks: Dunes, Goons, and the NHL

  • The casinos of Atlantic City were shielded from Hurricane Sandy by artificial dunes, erected at taxpayers’ expense, while poor residents next door were left unprotected. 
  • Monozygotic murder? One identical twin is accused of killing another. So much for DNA evidence…
  • Shocker: “No one on either side of the NHL labor fight stormed out of the room, broke off negotiations, or made inflammatory remarks as they left the building,” the AP reports.
