Londonist is one of thirteen in the worldwide Gothamist network. Once a week, the editors of each site - from SFist to Shanghaiist - compile some of their most interesting posts into a neat digest. Check out what's been going on elsewhere in the ist-a-verse:

  • Chicagoist occupied itself with Twilight and pillow fights.
  • Seattlest reminded us that we don't watch Mariners baseball for the game, we watch it for the player-on-player bromance.

  • Phillyist got personal this week, calling the man who stole a staffer's purse their official asshole of the week.

  • Torontoist thought about personal blogging, with special guest Lauren White (known better on the internet as Raymi the Minx).

  • Austinist had a chat with John Krasinski (Jim on The Office) about adapting David Foster Wallace's Brief Interviews with Hideous Men for the big screen.

  • Shanghaiist stopped making out in public, after getting wind that there was a group of PDA police tasked with ensuring that our displays of affection stay off the streets.

  • Gothamist was sad to hear that a dog which was brutally beaten and thrown off a building was, after being nursed back to health, euthanized by the ASPCA, which determined her to be too aggressive.

  • SFist wondered who paid for Mayor Gavin Newsom's life coach.

  • LAist interviewed Obama's campaign manager David Plouffe, stirring up talk of still-hot topics like John McCain, Rev. Wright, political journalism, and the concept of change.

  • DCist watched as a real life nature show unfolded at the National Zoo when a deer wandered in to the lion habitat on a busy Sunday afternoon.

  • Londonist mourned (or celebrated) the demise of poor quality free evening newspapers and loved/hated bendy buses on busy routes.
