And the Winners Are … ‘Succession’ Fans Who Correctly Chose the New C.E.O.
This article contains spoilers for the season finale of “Succession.” About an hour after “Succession” aired its final episode on Sunday night, Justin An spent about $1,000 on new clothes. Mr. An didn’t want to miss out on any Memorial Day sales and had just come into the money after correctly guessing that Tom Wambsgans would succeed Logan Roy as the head of the news and entertainment conglomerate Waystar Royco. Weeks before the show’s finale, he and four of his friends each wagered $200 on who would become the company’s new chief executive. “I just knew it wasn’t Kendall, Roman or Shiv, none of the Roy siblings,” Mr. An, a 26-year-old marketing strategist in New York, said. “And honestly, that’s all I really had to go off of. Tom seemed like the next-best person in line for the role.” Mr. An is one of many people who placed friendly wagers ahead of the end of “Succession.” Over the show’s four seasons of schemes, betrayals and reconciliations, fans watched as the … [Read more...] about And the Winners Are … ‘Succession’ Fans Who Correctly Chose the New C.E.O.
‘Let Me Fix That’: Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey Corrects ESPN Reporting on Law Banning Men in Women Sports
Republican Gov. Kay Ivey called upon ESPN to correct its reporting on a new law in her state that will ban men from participating in women’s sports at the college level.

When reporting the story, ESPN framed it as a law banning “transgender women” from certain sports. “Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed legislation on Tuesday that will ban transgender women from playing on female sports teams in college.

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration report released Tuesday, reveals that the IG believes the issues raised have not been fully resolved.

Photo: Andrew Lichtenstein/Corbis via Getty Images The City reported on Thursday that the New York City Department of Correction will no longer notify the media when a person dies while incarcerated, ending a consistent process that has been in effect for two years. “That was a practice, not a policy,” Frank Dwyer, the department’s new spokesman, told the outlet. The Legal Aid Society, the city’s largest provider of public defense, slammed the move in a statement: “This is another lowlight in the Department of Correction’s campaign to keep outside eyes away from the catastrophe that is the city’s jail system and the harm it inflicts daily on New Yorkers trapped inside its deadly walls.” The city’s shift in approach came to light following the deaths of two inmates on Rikers Island in recent weeks that the DOC did not publicize. The deaths were among five incidents mentioned in a … [Read more...] about The Adams Administration Has a New Policy for Jail Deaths: Cover-up
