What We Were Reading While We Should Have Been Working (exist) - 93

Ellen Cushing | October 11, 2013 | Lifestyle Story City Life

BART Trains Continue to Run Friday as Talks Continue: But you (hopefully) already figured that out. [H/t: SF Business Times]

The Lamest Moments in Beth Lisick's Life: You should really read the whole thing, but suffice it to say it includes references to a) Rob Schneider, b) a "ballet studio for goths," c) mystery drugs, and d) soft Italian cheeses. Feel free to imagine the possibilities while you wait for the page to load. [H/t: Bold Italic]

Greenwashing the War on Drugs: A long-but-worthy read about how law enforcement has managed to turn industrial pot production into an environmental problem—and how the War on Drugs itself is responsible for most of the damage. Also: excellent justification for growing your own weed. [H/t: East Bay Express]

Mark Zuckerberg Buys Four Houses Near His Palo Alto Home: Because he cares about privacy. [H/t: The Merc]

Sad Pot Bear: We are all sad pot bear; sad pot bear is all of us. [H/t Mission Mission]
