I spent a few hours on Saturday looking for some of the best finds from the past week:
The latest Simon's Cat went viral, of course, with Simon Tofield's "Smitten" getting millions of hits in its first few days.
"We are saving the lives of our enemies"
– LA Times story by Kate Linthicum
"Death with dignity" movement gets a toehold
Escaping was easy, killer says
Michael David Elliot wore layers of white thermals underneath a blue uniform, and tore it a little bit so he could rip it off easily when he dived into the snow at the Ionia Correctional Facility last Sunday. He also had white shoes, white gloves and a white ski mask.
–After he was caught, he used his one phone call to reach Elisha Anderson at the Detroit Free Press
– James Vincent of The Independent
Let me know what you think about today's picks.
If you find any good reads worth sharing, email firstname.lastname@example.org before 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 15. I'll compile a list for next Sunday. The Brunch uses only recent and credited items, BTW.
