Just Ella

"Just Ella" posits a future overrun by gibbering monstrosities.

Ella takes refuge in "the Ossington Safehouse, a collectively-run space dedicated to human sovereignty." But despite doing the assigned tasks on the chore list, the Safehouse isn't safe -- the terrors outside are nothing compared to those within.

Contains perhaps the first cinematic example of autocomplete used for a dramatic reveal.

Hell Freezes Over: Cop fired for harassing photographer

Sheriff Fires Cop Who Threatened to Arrest Me for Taking Photos of Cops

King County deputy Patrick "K.C." Saulet has been fired for threatening to arrest me last summer, when I was photographing several officers on a downtown street corner, and then lying to investigators about the incident, says King County sheriff John Urquhart.

The termination is effective today.

"You have a constitutional right to photograph the police," Sheriff Urquhart asserted in a phone interview with me today. Threatening to arrest a citizen for legally taking photos of cops while on public property, he added, "is a constitutional violation, as far as I am concerned."
