  • I think I witnessed this from my apartment. Around that time, a young black woman was shouting at and hitting a young white woman who had said she was autistic, after apparently almost hitting her with her vehicle in the alley and being called out for it. It was really disturbing. I hope they have caught or catch her.

    Does spending more money on a swank gym membership translate to more calories burned? We're not convinced that fitness needs to cost more than the price of a decent pair of athletic shoes and the time it takes to do pushups and burpies until we puke.
