Caveat Dater: Don'

A reader just drew our attention to (DDHG), a website profiled in this article from the NYT Thursday Styles section.

(Yes, we had to rely upon a reader tip; we're far too serious-minded here at Wonkette to read Thursday Styles. But Sunday Styles, that's a different story -- wedding announcements are news! Plus, David Brooks reads them, so that means they're okay.)

The Gray Lady reports:

Framed in pink, the site allows a woman to post the name and photograph of a man she says has wronged her, along with a short but often pungent synopsis of how precisely she was aggrieved. The suspicious or merely curious can hunt for a cheater by typing a name into the search engine.

Our curiosity piqued, we headed over to check it out. But we developed serious doubts about the site's comprehensiveness, after this search, this search and this search did not produce the expected results.

Despite its shortcomings, DDHG is a useful resource. Given the boundless depravity of men -- it took six seasons for Carrie and the girls to find true love! -- it's unreasonable to expect one website to be a repository for every "youthful indiscretion."

Now, what if you're a man who wants to look into the background of your lady friend? Fear not; help is on the way. According to the Times, site founder Tasha Joseph "is planning to start a companion site for men," She just needs to acquire the domain name -- from Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The mass murders at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, and at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, are still killing people. Two survivors of Parkland killed themselves in the past week, and this morning, the body of the father of one of the Sandy Hook children was found in Newtown. And something like 35,800 guns will be sold today, if 2019 stats are comparable to 2018 sales figures. But cheer up -- without Barack Obama scaring everyone with his promise to take all the guns, that's down 16 percent from the highest gun sales in history in 2016. Then again, despite the lower gun sales, there were nearly 40,000 deaths caused with firearms in 2018. It was the third record year in a row. We're Number One.

The news has been just horrifying. On March 17, Sydney Aiello, 19, who'd been on campus at Stoneman Douglas the day of the 2018 massacre, killed herself. She'd been a close friend of one of the girls who died in the shooting, and had been diagnosed with PTSD, according to her mother. She had started college but found it hard to just to sit in classrooms because of her fears that a gunman might burst in. Then, this weekend, another Stoneman Douglas student, a male sophomore, as yet unidentified, killed himself -- like Ms. Aiello, with a gun.

Today, police in Newtown found the body of Jeremy Richman, a neuropharmacologist and the father of Avielle Richman, who was only 6 years old when she was one of the 20 children and six adults murdered at Sandy Hook in 2012. Richman and his wife, Jennifer Hensel, had founded a nonprofit to research the neurological problems that might lead to violent behavior. The foundation had an office in the complex where Richman's body was found. The couple were also among the Sandy Hook parents suing Alex Jones for spreading the false conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook massacre was faked as part of a plot to take all the precious guns away.
