If you live in a city, every commute could be a “best-of” reel of dangerous driving. Car doors, in particular, have become an excellent teaching aid in proving Newton’s law that no two objects can occupy the same space simultaneously. Bikers, often sandwiched in a bike lane between parked cars and flowing traffic, are so prone to being struck by errant car doors that the phenomenon now has a name: dooring. Sadly, it’s more common than you’d think. As for scary driving scenarios, follow these …
It’s been almost a year since we first ran a Money Diary from a woman in L.A. who is one-half of a couple earning $1.25 million a year. Her diary was so popular that we did a follow-up interview a month later, where she candidly talked about how she negotiated her way to such a big paycheck and her struggle to talk to her family about her wealth.
This week, in celebration of Money Diaries Month, we published another diary from this L.A. OP, where she talks about the excitement of seeing her $225,000 bonus hit her bank account.
In our upcoming book,Money Diaries , we chatted more with the OP about how her money impacts her relationship with her family. She and her husband include a $15,000 line item in their budget to spend on their families each year. “As I’ve gotten more generous and they perceive that I have more money, they think of me as an ATM,” she said.
Below is an outtake from the interview with the L.A. diarist. You can read the full interview in the book. Order today!

CLEVELAND — Dez Bryant has stopped in to meet the Browns.
The three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver arrived at the team’s headquarters on Thursday, and the free agent’s visit could lead to Bryant signing with Cleveland. Bryant posted a photo on Twitter signing autographs at Cleveland’s airport.
The 29-year-old was released by Dallas after eight seasons in April and has been waiting to latch on with another team. He turned down a three-year contract offer from Baltimore, which may still have interest in him.
The Browns have plenty of room under the salary cap to offer Bryant a multi-year deal. However, the team may opt to sign him to a short-term contract. The Browns also must decide if they’re ready to take on a player who clashed with Cowboys coaches.
Several Cleveland players, including starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor and receiver Jarvis Landry, have expressed they would love Bryant to join them.
