Politico reports that former campaign officials with the Trump team say that the key to keeping Trump’s Twitter habit under control...is to ensure that his personal media consumption includes a steady stream of praise. Which, you know, is fine, because part of the job of being president definitely doesn't involve huge chunks of the country telling you what a huge piece of shit you are. And Trump definitely doesn't tweet his way into situations where people just respond with pig poop balls and calling him Tronald Dump. [ more › ]...

Irving Farm isn’t, like, a here-a-cluck-there-a-cluck farm. It’s more of a big roastery 100 miles north of the city.

Yesterday, the city was briefly enraptured by a brave bull that fled its Jamaica slaughterhouse and led cops on a wild chase through the streets of Jamaica, Queens. Sadly, the bull died shortly after cops shot it with tranquilizer darts—a fate all the more tragic considering he was about to be rescued by an animal sanctuary in New Jersey. And to memorialize poor Ferdinand&dmash;as well as to urge the city to properly either train law enforcement to handle these situations appropriately, or else cease slaughterhouse operation within city limits, a local activist group will hold a candlelight vigil tonight outside the slaughterhouse from whence the bull came.

A new Walt Whitman story has been unearthed 125 years after his death. The novel, titled The Life and Adventures of Jack Engle, was only published once in a newspaper in 1852. It ran in six installments, and was published anonymously. The Sunday Dispatch, a New York City paper that Whitman was known to contribute to, ran the 36,000-word story in March of that year, and alerted the public via an advertisement that ran in a rival paper, the New York Times. You can see the ad here on page 3; it read: This week's Sunday Dispatch will contain The Life and Adventures of Jack Engle, an autobiography, in which will be handled the philosophy, philanthropy, pauperism, law, crime, love, matrimony, morals... which are characteristic of this great city at the present time, including the manners and morals of boarding houses, some scenes from church history, operations in W...
