"The spot where Mr. Kevane’s converter was cut out from under his car.Credit...James Tensuan for The New York Times"

"Context, Jimmy - a story needs context! If it bleeds it leads! Put a human face on this... exhaust pipe parts theft! Bring them... the pathos"

If the New York Times were a journalistic organization worth the paper it's printed on, they'd talk about how the reason prices are so dumbly high is market manipulation, as is always the case.

But it's not, so they won't, so James gets to get proctological on a Prius.
