So the guy who, in two short years, became the soul of Gawker just left. And I’m sure Gawker will survive just fine - it always seems to, doesn’t it?
After all, Gawker has balls (lots of them these days), and it has brains to be sure. And spleen and … well, guts.

Thaddeus McCotter, a Republican congressman of Michigan, will introduce a resolution in the House tonight asking President Obama to formally apologize to the Cambridge Police Department.

Established in 1812, the Knabstrupper started with a single chestnut blanketed mare purchased by a Danish butcher named Flaeb from a Spanish cavalry officer. The mare, who became known as “Flaebohoppen” (which literally means “Flaeb’s mare”), was purchased by Major Villars Lunn who owned an estate called “Knabstrupgaard” in Holbaek, Nordsealand, Denmark.
Flaeb’s mare was bred to a Fredricksborg stallion and produced a wildly colored stallion son who was named “Flaebehingsten.” Between the two of them, Flaebehoppen and Flaebehingsten were bred to a large variety of good quality horses, producing loudly colored and grand offspring and establishing the Knabstrupper horses as some of the most sought after in Europe at that time.
