This site is meant to be a fun place for us all to hang out and enjoy ourselves, and I have no intention of changing that. But as you’re probably already aware, the situation in Ferguson, MO right now is utterly disgraceful, and it feels wrong not to mention it. Here is a good assemblage of information, including numerous eyewitness tweets, pictures, and video. Vox and the various Gawker Media sites have also been doing some solid reporting, and The Toast just put up some more links.
Now we’ll get back to our regularly scheduled programming of cute videos and fondly mocking celebrities. Let’s all do what we can to make this garbage planet of ours a little better today.
ETA: This site has a list of cities that are holding National Moment Of Silence events to tonight (thanks, catweazle).
