Cats and Socialists Make The World Go Round

This week was an emotional roller coaster. A beloved punk band announced its breakup, I tried in vain to get some shut-eye and Fox News was an idiot when it comes to socialism. On the plus side, our photographer enjoyed a cat party, another great band release a new song and Fox News being an idiot when it comes to socialism isn’t the worst thing in the world.

Here were our top reads for the week.
