Today in New York Guys
And a recommendation thread.
Friday Odds and Ends
Teams of FBI agents executed “numerous search warrants” at homes and businesses throughout the New York area Thursday morning, including one at the home of chief fundraiser for Adams’ campaign, Brianna Suggs, multiple law enforcement sources told CNN.
Adams, who is not known to be a target of the probe, has said he’s traveled to Turkey at least a half dozen times, including twice over a five-month span in 2015 when he served as Brooklyn Borough President.
Seems normal. More on this: continuously for the next five to eight months.
Also Today In New York Guys: Hell Gate has an update on Jerry Saltz’s already idiosyncratic diet, which has now dropped the breakfast egg on toast and gone fully chicken-breast-and-spinach-core.
You Can Just… Not Post:
This guy still has a job.
Kim Kardashian also still has a job, despite a new ad that playfully positions her Skims Nipple Bra as a fun solution to the main problem of climate change, which is the heat turning off your headlights:
Michelle Wolf apparently wrote the ad. Oof.
Special Boy Update:
I’m sure you saw already but Sam Bankman-Fried was unsurprisingly found guilty on all counts. Liz Lopatto wrote a good but kind of sad wrap-up of the trial and what she thinks happened, and Amy Castor and David Gerard have a collection of other recent bad news for crypto, which is a real fountain of bad news here at the tail end of twenty dickety three.
Join us over the garden (pay)wall for what I hope will be an open thread even more full of recommendation than the preceding was full of condemnation.
