the brooklyn popcorn fire is from September 2009 (note the post's date) and is not a recent event.

Yeah, the theater fire caught my eye too, because I live down the block from the Court St. UA. Glad I got excited over nothing.

And the other post from A Brooklyn Life, about the tacos, is dated last June.

Looks like we're missing the headline "Dewey Beats Truman," too. Just kidding--I'm sure this was an accidental error as the blog in error just restarted operations.

OMG - poster number three is right. We heard that A Brooklyn Life started again and got a flood of posts in our in box, which we were only too happy to link to. Sorry for the faux excitement.
