    I was wrong--it was the NY Post that got the photo, the Mail was the paper that contacted the advertising company and said that the poster at the bus stop behind her had an ad for a local hospital when the photo was taken. In the photo there was a poster for the Seth Rogen comedy Good Boys, which the advertising company said never was used at that location. There was a Twitter thread from an Epstein-heavy account that I followed for a while that found a lot of really crude photoshop edits both in that photo and a second one that was also sent to the Post, possibly trying to hide the presence of another person that was sitting with her. But the dog in her photo closely resembled her lawyer's dog, so I don't know why they would leave that in if they were trying to hide her lawyers' presence.

    Still...photoshopping in a poster for Good Boys. You really start to get Epstein brain if you think about this too much.

      In more Creepy Pete news, his sons have now filed lawsuits against him for having them raped as teenagers by their father's 'girlfriends' to make men of them.

        The truth is that the elite world that Epstein ascended into, the one I tapped into by way of the black book, is populated with hordes of loathsome, boring, untalented people living their bumbling, idiotic lives while just so happening to wield some share of the preposterous global bounty that he and the rest were after. For all the mystery surrounding Epstein’s fortune, its existence is hardly more inscrutable than the wealth of any of his other billionaire peers. He earned it the same way they all did, which is to say precisely not at all.

        This wasn’t some masterful hack into the global aristocracy. It’s what everyone does. It’s what the whole thing is. There is no scam here. It’s grifters grifting grifters all the way down.

          Ghislaine Maxwell's 2016 deposition has been unsealed. 400 pages. CNN is combing through it now.

            Turns out the redactions have been easy to crack:

              That is some wonderfully short-sighted implementation of redacting.

                Or a token attempt?

                  Antepli Ejderha - I wonder. Maybe ursus arctos can shed some light. I would have expected that if you redact a document, it would be standard practice to redact the whole of the alphabetized index. It may have been an oversight or error, but it certainly makes a joke of bothering to redact anything.

                    There is no standard practice, which is part of the problem.

                    But this is very sloppy.

                    And if Maxwell's lawyers really were fighting this hard, it is close to malpractice.

                      Her lawyers were fighting hard to protect the redacted people rather than just her? OTOH I'm not sure you need the index to figure out that the Prince Andrew one, say; you just compare it to the alleged victim's claims.

                        The way this usually happens is that the high-priced lawyers who are fighting in court give vague instructions to a senior associate, who in turn instructs a junior associate, who in turn asks a paralegal or admin to do the actual reactions at the last possible minute.
