Bullshit: The New York Times claims men wearing high heels is a trend

This smacks of their usual, "I know two guys who are doing a thing so lets us intimate that it's a burgeoning national trend." Some Men Are Dressed to the Nines, the Height of Their Pumps - NYTimes.com
. . . On his Size 11 feet were a pair of eight-inch bright neon green lace-up stiletto ankle boots, procured from the Ladies Studio Exotic Shoes on Hollywood Boulevard. He jokingly dubbed them “my usual hiking shoes.” Mr. Wagner was otherwise dressed in men’s clothing: a loose-fitting black tank top with a pair of tapered black pants. He had a neatly trimmed beard, and a pair of black-framed glasses sat perched on his nose. “I never leave the house with less than eight inches on my feet,” he said cheerfully. “It helps you see over the cattle.” Mr. Wagner was not the only man wearing high heels (but no other women’s clothing) that night. At Mr. Black, Luke Nero, a promoter, estimated that 10 or more men were traversing the dance floor in a pair of pumps. “I went to a loft party yesterday, and there was a guy in normal shorts, normal tank and really hot red pumps. That’s it!” he said. “Everyone was like, ‘Oh my God, I love those shoes!’ ” . . .

Broke towns decide to stop fluoridating the water supplies

Looking to Save Money, More Places Decide to Stop Fluoridating the Water - NYTimes.com
MIAMI — A growing number of communities are choosing to stop adding fluoride to their water systems, even though the federal government and federal health officials maintain their full support for a measure they say provides a 25 percent reduction in tooth decay nationwide. Last week, Pinellas County, on Florida’s west coast, voted to stop adding fluoride to its public water supply after starting the program seven years ago. The county joins about 200 jurisdictions from Georgia to Alaska that have chosen to end the practice in the last four years, motivated both by tight budgets and by skepticism about its benefits. . . .

No one knows who owns the vacant lots of Detroit

Detroit Fact Of The Day | ThinkProgress
One of the most interesting things I heard at the conference yesterday was about the inverse of my obsession with densifying high-cost urban areas—the process of suburbanizing cheap land areas of Detroit. It makes sense. You own a house on a small plot on a block with many vacant and worthless properties, so you buy up adjacent plots and now you have a nice suburban-sized lawn. But there’s a problem (PDF): Though the New Suburbanism is happening all over Detroit, because the city has no mechanism for facilitating the transfer of vacant, city-owned land to private ownership, accumulating vacant lots can be exceedingly difficult. Individuals wishing to purchase tax-foreclosed vacant land invariably experience frustration at each stage of the process, from the identification of the lot’s ownership (the City maintains no comprehensive database of the properties it owns), through the receipt of the title deed: a “quit-claim deed” that offers no guarantee that the title is not clouded with liens, utility bills and the like. This seems totally insane, and it drives home the extent to which Detroit’s problems are caused or exacerbating by totally dysfunctional municipal government. . . .

Gallery: We Are The 99%

Look, we are at a frankly amazing point right now in our history. The top 1% are wealthier and more powerful than ever before, and the consequences of the greed and avarice are rolling like thunder peals across the country. People are taking notice and demanding change. But will this lead to action, political changes, government regulation of Wall Street, etc. Or is this just like Hunter S Thompson's Great Wave speech, where the Baby Boomers thought marches and good vibes were enough to change the world but failed to create any sort of meaningful structure and ultimately saw their movement collapse? It's too soon to tell. But this Tumblr gallery is beautiful. It's people who are experiencing some awful times being part of the 99% of the country who don't have any power, sharing their stories. We Are the 99 Percent
