Some days it just doesn’t pay to be a news junkie.
In addition to the actual torture we’ve discussed the past couple of days, day seven of Zappadan 2014 brings:
- Many say American dream is out of reach, poll finds
- Detroit is out of bankruptcy, but not out of the woods
- 5.15 trillion bits of plastic float in oceans
Great googly moogly! FZ was right! The torture never stops! And that was just from The New York Times. Elsewhere, we have the UCI awarding Astana a WorldTour berth, which is like giving Dracula the keys to the blood bank.
I fled the office and took a nice bike ride into the nearby hills, proving that the American dream can still be had, if only as a brief respite between nightmares. I’m gonna do it again tomorrow. I recommend it to you all.
