I still feel really proud about helping to produce this special issue of #TheIndypendent back in June 2007. It took many years of people acting up and speaking out to get to where we are today. There is still much work to be done.

The Indypendent handed out hundreds of copies of its special edition on New York’s troubled subway system at Hoyt-Schermerhorn and Atlantic Yards subway stations Tuesday afternoon. It was the beginning of a weeklong tour of some of the city’s major transit hubs, in which Indy staff and volunteers will be handing out papers.
The crisis in New York’s subway system has received intense media scrutiny during the past month. However, coverage has largely focused on possible technical fixes for the subway’s antiquated signal system, track fires caused by discarded debris, as well as the long-running feud between the governor and the mayor of New York. In this issue,The Indy digs deeper.  We look at the underlying political and economic incentives that cause top officials to pursue costly mega-projects at the expense of basic maintenance and offers potential solutions for transforming

Excerpt celebrating my blackness Via @theindypendent My blackness has smelled like cocoa butter and coconut oil long before Trader Joe’s sold them. My brown feels comfortable like wearing a world of understanding under a broken in leather jacket. My sepia tone reminds me of my Aunt & ‘Dem playing spades and frying food late into the dawn.

in addition to showing up in solidarity for workers + immigrant rights yesterday; i finally got to see my illustration [of an asshole w his hair on fire stuck on an ice flo] in print accompanying a solid article on climate change by brian tobar in the most recent issue of @theindypendent 📰 if 45's actions threatening the planet and its environment don't terrify you, you're not paying attention.
as you can see, i am beyond shook, so i am responding by enjoying a balanced breakfast at 2:00pm. the b+j's vegan ice cream paired w a caramel 🐢 + tahini chews from @lagustasluscious are obvs performing a crucial function; and then the banana + maté are there to make this healthy methinks 🤔

p.s. go vegan for the planet 🌏✨

HAPPY 90th BIRTHDAY!
Gruff, erudite and always ready to enjoy a good laugh, Donald has a wide-ranging mind that is still as clear as a bell and he’s mad as hell about Trump. We recently interviewed him at his beloved United Nations and will be sharing that in the near future. For now, he savors a milestone in his long and eventful life.
.
Donald Paneth started his career as a cub reporter at the New York Times in 1944. He covered the launching of the United Nations in New York in 1945-1946 for The Times. He left The Times in 1949 and went on to work for a number of New York City newspapers and magazines before returning to edit the U.N.’s annual yearbook for many years.

Shortly after 9/11, Donald came by our office to see if he could help out. He soon became the oldest member of our collective and with his penchant for wearing three-piece suits at all times of the year, the best-dressed as well. Utilizing his encyclopedic knowledge of the U.N. Security Council, the former Timesman provided in-depth coverage from inside the UN of the U.S. drive for war in Iraq and continued reporting from the UN for The Indy through 2008. In recent years, the life-long New York native has focused on writing poetry and fiction.
