Or: How Stephanie Thompson’s teenage son learned to stop rebelling and love the mom-time

Fearless Parenting: This week, Stephanie’s teenage son learns to go with the flow. Comment
Page 1: In this week’s former Brooklyn Paper reporter profile, we break with tradition and honor a journalist who is very much still on the payroll, Moses Jefferson. An eternally fresh-faced go-getter of unknown origins, no one can quite remember when he started writing for the Brooklyn Paper, but we certainly can’t imagine him ever stopping. Who could forget his big scoop on Prospect Park’s rehabilitated red-tailed hawk or the time he blew the lid off the return of notorious PTA thief “Mom-strocity”? No one who read those fine pieces of American journalism, that’s for sure. So keep an eye out for this kid — we think he’s got a real future in the biz, because he always keeps hustlin’, Brooklyn.

Transit: A Metropolitan Transportation Authority honcho emphatically denies that the agency only reports hateful graffiti on its property to the police if it is difficult to remove — saying the agency’s policy is to report anything that could be considered offensive to police and immediately scrub it off — contradicting what an agency spokesman told this paper on Monday after someone scrawled “F--- Allah” on the Fort Hamilton Parkway F stop.
