I’m not sure what was in the air (or water) yesterday. But three — three! — readers sent examples of jaw-droppingly, spectacularly self-centered entitled parking jobs.
In 3 different parking lots.
Occasionally, photos like these bring out apologists. “The parking brake must have failed, and it rolled backward!” people will say.
Or, “Maybe it was a medical emergency!”
Judging by where these folks “parked” — no.
They are just drivers who can’t be bothered to read signs, follow rules, or think about anyone other than themselves.
Don’t be That Guy.
Fortunately, entitled parkers were not all that “06880” readers spotted downtown yesterday.
Johanna Rossi captured this gorgeous rainbow over the Westport Library.
Hey! Maybe all those drivers saw it too. And just stopped their cars wherever, and wandered away for a better view….
Lynsey Addario — the 1991 Staples High School graduate whose New Your Times photos from Ukraine have impacted the world — was the Friday night guest on “Firing Line.”

A large crowd of punks — and art lovers — filled MoCA Westport’s galleries last night.
“Punk is Coming” had its grand opening. The diverse group exhibition features over 50 photographers, filmmakers and artists whose work defined the punk era in 1970’s New York, London, Los Angeles and other cities. There are never-before-seen videos and photographs,, art created by the era’s musicians, and contemporary works heavily influenced by the movement.
Free supporting programming, featuring those central to the punk movement (like the original video jockey!) take place on Thursday evenings. Click here to learn more.
The show runs through June 5.
Today’s “Westport … Naturally” photo features a fox. Bob Weingarten apologies for not getting a full side-on view. But it’s still a fine-looking creature.
And finally … I missed this yesterday. But on March 26, 1830 the Book of Mormon was published in Palmyra, New York.
