Alternate Headline: How to Get Around the Dallas Morning News’ Paywall If You Have a Lot of Time on Your Hands
This guy is Dallas attorney Levi McCathern. When he’s not being an eagle or a shark (depending on your opinion of the legal profession), he likes to hunt all manner of animals. Last week, he managed to kill an 880-pound alligator while hunting in Leon County. With a gun. While it would sound more badass if he had killed it with his bare hands, apparently shooting a moving target in the brain when the target’s brain is the size of a golf ball and is 100 yards away is also pretty hard. So there’s that.
But more interestingly is that the story is behind a paywall on the DMN site. However, I found the whole store, for free, here. If you’re interested, you should probably read fast, because something similar happened over the weekend when Evan Grant wrote a beautiful column about going to a baseball game with his dad. It was behind the paywall, but people soon found it for free on the Star-Telegram’s site, until news of its freeness made the Twitters, and then it was quickly yanked.
So there you go. Quick Google fingers and a giant chunk of time to kill will give you a peeksy behind the paywall.
