Pete Domenici Just Died, Here's That Piece We Ran On His Lovechild Scandal Years Ago

A Little Bill Hearst Yellow Journalism, You Could Say

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - The writer of this piece, at this time he posted it years ago, was asked by a reader "When Pete actually does die, aren't you going to feel bad for having written this?"

And You Thought All Great Housemates Were Taken

PHILADELPHIA, PA - Why not this guy? Most malleable roommate in the world.

His earnest go-with-the-flow enthusiasm is still the greatest thing.


Economics Is Not Numbers

by Otto Dicpetris

ST. PETE, FL - I spent my whole life trying to figure out what the worst thing in the universe is, and 30 years later, I got it. Being boring or uptight. No, uptight. Being uptight.

(Read on for a fun lesson in value system.)


I Got Fired For Being A Journalist

This piece was picked up by the Pointer Institute and Buzzfeed. But you heard it here first.

NORTH ADAMS, MA - In the back of my head I thought, “Did the Transcript hire me as a filterer or a reporter? I’m not here to filter what people say; I’m here to report what people say.” I vigorously defended my work, which only irritated Foster, who said he got the impression I wasn’t “getting it.”

French People

AUSTIN, TX - Yesterday my art-school friend Jeff sent me a Texas picture from back in the day I hadn’t seen before, prompting a conversation about the good people of France. I used to make goat cheese on Valentin's family’s farm on a mountain called Bormes-Les-Mimosas overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. 

 Eva: Oh my god, Valentin from South France looking like a total bum whoooaaaaa!! I won't even mention what I'm wearing - that's a whole other prison sentence of eternal delight and shame.

Jeff: I think he was just disguising himself to fit into Texas... I remember him being quite the gentleman.

Eva: Yeah, he was so cultivated, designing entire gourmet dinner menus in his mind out loud as we drove across the desert. French people.

Jeff: TELL ME ABOUT IT. You can't leave them alone in your house for a second... before you know it everything is clean and filled with interesting books.

Eva: That would be a great sketch comedy piece - a Frenchman breaks into your house and makes everything beautiful and the family is all scared and horrified.

Jeff: Hahaha

APD Circus Starts With The Ringmasters

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - A fun piece wherein Eva Avenue interviews a lot of people about the DOJ Report findings from 2015 and how the local police culture works a little bit in Albuquerque. Excited to include perspective from Sergeant Tom Grover from the Albuquerque Police Department. Anytime she interviews The Law, she does so as a cultural anthropologist to really get a sense for what is going on. Click "Read More" for full article.

Hasidic Men of Jewish Faith Do Get Hot Under Those Black Suits

BROOKLYN, NY - My first thought, after the other first thought of how cool they all look walking around in a uniform harkening back to memories of Vaudeville performers and Charlie Chaplin while on the other hand looking very elegant and beautiful, I would think damn they must be hot under there and do they get red heat rashes all over their body??
