I’ve subscribed to Satan’s Laundromat RSS feed for a long time now. It is a photo-blog based in Brooklyn. The author (artist? photographer) has a knack for finding sublime images in rough and forgotten neighborhoods on the fringe of the city. Lots of urban decay, etc.
Turns out via today’s entry he spent the weekend in jail. Arrested during one of Bloomberg’s fascist mass-arrests of harmless bicycling protesters.
The tale he tells is really awful. 16 hours in a make-shift jail, followed by another 14 waiting for paperwork. Read the whole thing. [link]
Technical note: Because his RSS feed doesn’t include images I use a NewsGator plugin called FetchLinks that goes out and downloads the full content of the page every time.
