Greenwald responds to “personal attacks and smears” — Since breaking the story about the NSA’s secret surveillance program and staying in contact with Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald of the Guardian has come under fire from not just government officials, but also fellow journalists. In a column, Greenwald responds to the smears and writes that he knew he would become a target of “all sorts of personal attacks and smears.” Having befriended Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers, Greenwald knew the tactics employed by the government to try to lower the leaker’s credibility. The journalist said he wasn’t surprised when he received an email from a New York Daily News reporter emailed him to ask about old lawsuits in which Greenwald was involved, including a dispute with an adult video producer and a multi-member LLC that he was part of, as well as back taxes owed from Greenwald’s old law practice. As Greenwald writes, “I’m 46 years old and, like most people, have lived a complicated and varied adult life.”

Ten Commandments of Doughnuts — Frustrated by the fact that doughnut shops have no standard set of rules to adhere to? Well worry no more, WaPo’s Joe Yonan laid out the “Ten Commandments of Doughnuts for those who make and sell them.” The list includes keeping doughnuts fresh, not going overboard with the oil, keeping it simple, using high-quality ingredients and enough filling and make sure the doughnuts are visually appealing, among a few others. The guidelines are very well thought out, and we can tell Yonan has eaten his fair share of doughnuts (no, we’re not calling him a fatso). Reading the list brings to light all the little things most people don’t think about that make going to a doughnut shop a memorable experience. Hopefully some doughnut-shop owners took note of the guidelines and will step up their game before your next visit.
