BLOGFIGHT OF THE WEEK

Just heating up at press time is the hoofaraw at Ed Cone’s blog (www.edcone.typepad.com) about News & Record columnist Charles Davenport’s Sunday piece in which he slings some assumptions about Nazis, liberals and socialism. The big players here are perennial Davenport haters Cone and Roch101, who double-team upstart brandonB, a serial commenter who boasts a mean contrarian streak. What is it about Nazis that gets people so riled up? — BC

HOMELESS INTERN

Last month fashion magazine Elle extended an offer of an internship to Brianna Karp, a 24-year-old homeless person who had been living in a trailer in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Brea, Calif. E Jean Carroll, the magazine’s advice columnist, offered her the job, which pays about $150 a month and is the type of plum internship usually reserved for Ivy League J-school grads and the socially well connected. Fortunately, Karp won’t have to relocate to New York City, where Elle is headquartered and $150 a month won’t buy a parking space. In related news, YES! Weekly is still actively seeking an intern for the fall and winter. It is, alas, an unpaid position. Hit me up at editor@yesweekly.com if you’re interested. — BC
