There’s a horrific story of animal abuse in the sidebars today. I won’t describe the sidebar, and I won’t read the story, and I’m not going to discuss it with anyone, but consider this a warning.
Check out any of the other mainpages at your peril.
ETA; there’s an innocuous blue toy truck in the picture, which makes it seem really harmless until you read the accompanying text. AVOID THE BLUE TRUCK, PEOPLE!
ETA: it seems to have moved off the sidebar at this point (8:15 p.m.). The article itself has been pushed down to the second page by now, but there is an update, so they may promote it again.
