As I said, there's not much he can do because everything is controlled by the state. In my dream world, I guess I would form a coalition with other progressive mayors a la Bloomberg's anti-gun and climate initiatives (I hate Bloomberg but he was good on those things), and push for federal and state action instead of Read more

Yeah I mean that's a good point. But usually where there's a high-enough concentration of any income, there'll be at least a few services catering to that group. Fort Greene is a good example - the housing projects are right across from one of the most wealthy sections of Brooklyn but there are still some delis, cheap Read more

There are still normal things like grocery stores in gentrified neighborhoods. Also, what are you proposing, that all poor people just move to other cities with less $4 coffee?

You hit the nail on the head. You can pretty much guarantee every time in American history that people decided to build a highway, or a huge stadium project, or anything that requires people to move, it was in a black neighborhood. Read more

I'm just going to start feeling sad for him because look how sad those eyes are

Wait so does "well, I'll keep you posted," mean that she's going to go on a manhunt for her. I'd watch the shit out of that episode.

...And into the Gowanus and the Hudson....pretty much every waterway. It's actually the bane of the people trying to fix up the Gowanus's existence because they keep trying to beautify it, and then shit keeps getting thrown in it.

Yeah I exercise but running sucks balls (lol), but this makes me actually want to run. I don't want to copy her exactly but maybe I'll pick up a FitBit (that sounds dirty too), and start running around the neighborhood making shapes now.

I didn't say it wasn't awesome. It is! But NYC is just a smidgen bigger, richer, and home to a lot more tech companies, so it's kind of embarrassing that Chattanooga is eating our lunch.

I kind of thinks corporate mergers are inevitable at this point in the cable industry. A better alternative would be for New York to start its own municipal wifi, 4g, or broadband service. Smaller cities across the country have, and they actively compete with the shitbags at Comcast and Time Warner. Public investment Read more

Terry Richardson is terrible, we can all agree on that. But I'm pretty sure the pics Jezebel obtained were just low quality or uploaded weirdly. There's no way a professional photographer could do an entire photoshoot of blurry pics.

I also think he's a no-talent hack but to be fair I'm pretty sure those blurry ones are just low quality. There's no way you could retouch those to make them look like they did. If he's taking photos that blurry he needs an eye doctor (as well as a fuckin psychologist).
