Today In People Are Horrible: You Have To Pay To Get Your Name Off “Potential Prostitutes” Web Site

PotentialProstitutes.com is a hideous new website that posts the photos, locations and phone numbers of women who it deems might be sex workers.

True Story: This Morning, I Watched A Man Commit Domestic Violence While Bystanders Did Nothing

This morning, something weird happened: I woke up at 5:30 a.m. as alert as if I had been mainlining espresso. Anyone who knows me knows waking up at even 8 a.m. is a struggle for me. When I couldn’t fall back asleep, I got out of bed to shower and do my hair and makeup.
