Tuesday’s weird news

Too many interesting links for one Facebook post today: A Durst mixup, Gannett spending, and the end (for now) of a walking metaphor for going mad with power.

– AP confused murder defendant Robert Durst with Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst. I have no idea why either of them is famous.

– Cheer up, laid-off Gannett folks — your CEO made $12.4 million in 2014, up from a paltry $7.9 million the year before! This wouldn’t be possible without your noble efforts before being marched out of the building.

– Hubris is taking taxpayer money to decorate your office Downton Abbey-style. Make you wonder if the series’ progressive take on the blurring of England’s once-rigid class divisions was lost on Rep. Aaron Schock. No matter — he’s stepping down from Congress amid several spending questions. I think I’d rather be represented by Gina Schock.
