Classic luxury cars and their owners at the Concors d’Elegance. Pebble Beach, Calif. 

Ariel Zambelich gave me the awesome opportunity to make some photos of fancy cars at the world class car show held on the 18th Hole at Pebble Beach for WIRED.com, but I couldn’t resist the fancy people in the fancy cars. 

Photographer Jason Henry did a pretty epic job at the car show — and it’s true: the fancy people are almost more fun than the fancy cars themselves!

Check out more of our Pebble Beach coverage here and here.

It was as if everything—the backyard scrapes, Spillane and Rand, Daredevil and Batman, the heartbreak of writing for Hollywood—was distilled. In Miller’s world, unlikely protagonists rise up against sinister forces and stare evil in the face. Loyalty is a virtue, but lovers rarely make for permanent allies, and old faces can signal danger. The hero, alone, is defined by excruciating physical tests, and his code allows for vengeance. Sometimes he survives.

Expect Many, Many Lawsuits From Ferguson

WASHINGTON — It’s been nine days since Michael Brown was shot, unarmed, in the middle of a street in Ferguson, Missouri, but civil rights and civil liberties legal advocates say the legal fallout from the shooting and its tumultuous aftermath are just beginning.  

“There will be lawsuits up the kazoo,” said Barbara Arnwine, the longtime president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, in an interview Sunday evening. “I think you’re going to see ripple after ripple of legal matters here in response to this outrageous situation.”

The cluster-you-know-what won’t be going away anytime soon.

Hope y’all are paying close attention.
