Readers Capture the Complexity of the US-Mexican Border
What does life look like along the 2,000 miles of the US-Mexico border?
The New York Times crowdsourced reader photos, from the intimate to the aerial, to tell the visual story.
FJP: One of the best crowdsourced interactive features we’ve seen in a long time. Yet, you will need more than a thousand pictures to really grasp what exactly is going on along the US-Mexico border, one of the busiest in the world. And, as you most certainly know, it is not only about Tijuana anymore, but about a long series of bordertowns than span all the way East until the Rio Grande Valley.
Um, guys: public radio temporary tattoos. Apparently some stations will offer these at pledge drive time. And WE LOVE THEM.

Shane Salerno is best known as a screenwriter on films such as Armageddon, Shaft, AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem and more recently, Oliver Stone’s Savages. This year, however, he’s gone behind the camera for the new documentary Salinger, which was recently acquired by The Weinstein Co. and will be released in theaters this September followed by a release on PBS in January 2014, which is to say, yes, this will be eligible for Best Documentary this year.
The film, as I’m sure you’ve already surmised, centers on author J.D. Salinger, the famously private literary icon and author of “Franny and Zooey”, “Nine Stories” and “The Catcher in the Rye”. Salerno is also co-authoring a biography on Salinger with David Shields, titled “The Private War of J.D. Salinger”, which will be published by Simon & Schuster and hit shelves in September.
Today The Hollywood Reporter premiered the following first poster for the film and reports the doc will include appearances by authors John Guare, Tom Wolfe, E.L. Doctorow and Gore Vidal, as well as actors Phillip Seymour Hoffman, John Cusack and Martin Sheen.
wow I am excited for this and the biography wow
yo my school is being mad embarrassing right now, c’mon if you’re gonna share your dirty laundry kids, at least pick out the interesting stuff we all know about your racist period panties and your sexist drawers, i wanna hear about you being a furry or sleeping with all of your TAs to pass, you are 1600&late with that bigoted shit, we can be better at this guys.
seriously do we have to go through this shit every year. people get hurt. your words hurt. and it’s only getting worse.
Words cannot describe how much I love this.
Red lipstick as a form of empowerment.
Holy shit it’s 5am but this is an otherwise unmemorable day that has become memorable on so many levels.
I can be so desensitized to these things. When Newtown happened I was boarding a plane. I was shocked but not really sad. You can’t call non-emotion sadness.
In a way I’m so glad that 9/11 happened before all this internet. Because it’s the breaking news reports and anecdotes and facebook prayers and tumblr signals and all that news and emotion that’s getting to me. Thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers.
Tonight is the night my feature goes to print and this has been a confusing time for me spiritually, working on this monster of a topic, studying these horrific things about Chicago, about us. And yet I cannot bring myself to pray.
My family is safe. When I called, they didn’t even know what happened. They were home working, gardening. It’s Patriot’s day and the courts are closed.
It’s just a lot of emotion, really. And perversely I’m glad, because it’s making me feel something. It’s making me hold on the the memory of watching my closest friends in the OLAS show, seeing them so so happy and free and beautiful. And it’s that memory of dancing with them that I’ll hold on to. My first successful tequila shot and listening to music I can’t understand in words, but feel so acutely in my core. Getting drunk and singing along to Gutenberg and Dirt Red and stomping on Chicago apartment floors. And staying up all night to write and edit and laugh with good people. I love my beautiful friends and I’m so grateful for all the color and dance and music and joy they’ve brought to my life here. They’ve helped me to feel things more and better in they way they’ve helped me to learn samba and cumbia and salsa.
I’m so happy and so sad all together. But mostly I’m relieved to be feeling something.

This is big news that has left people with a lot of questions in terms of what will come next. WBEZ Education Reporter Linda Lutton joins Shantell in the studio to explain the reasoning behind these massive school closings and what the school districts are planning to do next.
Linda Lutton is incredible.
I feel like we are somewhere between rookie, hello giggles, thought catalog, and vulture. perhaps the perfect concoction of all four?
