1. It's been a week for natural disasters. I recognize that power outages are part of it, but my morning news talked more about Hurricane Maria yesterday than today, so just a reminder that these things go on and sometimes people are too busy digging out of the rubble, or tending to basic things, to do the on the spot reports you might be used to. I think there will be more resources as people get ready, and no I have not forgotten the earthquake in Mexico City, or the other floods and disasters in other parts of the world. This ABC post has some recommendations for Mexico as does this one from Bustle.
2. A deaf man was killed by police after he failed to follow their verbal instructions. Neighbors who witnessed it were trying to alert police that he was deaf.
3. This story behind the story of the greatest recipe comment of all time is intriguing and, dare I say it, delicious.
