Waiting for Good Dough



Here's my City Paper cover story on the state of Philadelphia pizza.

Full credit to Michelle for dreaming up that headline.

Free Spammer Darko



Darko Milicic seems to be moonlighting as a spammer. He clearly sent this to my work account before the T-Wolves signed the big man to a four-year contract worth $20 million (?!). 


Dear,

My name is Darko, i am from Serbia, and i would like to ask you for donation for me to go in Montenegro. My girlfriend working there and i want to spend rest of this summer with her because i love her so much and i miss her and i can't be without her two months. I came back yesterday from Montenegro because i couldn't find job there but i don't know how to back again. Thank you anyway (if you help me or if you not) for your time spent reading this.

Best regards,
Darko


My official scouting report on Spammer Darko: A true 70wpm typist who thrives in a transparent offensive system. Doesn't get bogged down in syntax and possesses the instincts to cut to the chase, often in an opening sentence. Needs to work on improving grammar, though some European observers have suggested this is a strength masquerading as a flaw (the thinking here is it bolsters believability). Post-greeting moves are raw but intermittently brilliant. Some reports indicate he will be able to extend his range with hands-on coaching. Has been compared to a young Milorad Pavic; tremendous upside.
