That article made no sense whatsoever. I might as well write an article about the blackout then start taking about the bee population in brazil.

The poverty rate is up to 29 percent, 8 percent higher than in 2007 when the city was still rebuilding after the Hurricane.


I'm gonna let this guy in on a little secret. The people who are making up the people in poverty don't have the skillset to get a job much better than....

quote:

But this economic comeback, with an emphasis on low-paying, zero-benefits service-industry jobs


These kind of jobs. Poverty ridden groups don't become Fortune 500 execs because they aren't qualified for the positions.

quote:

widening inequality.


If its income equality, I'd say thats a good thing. The wider the better. Means people are being rewarded for their skills in my book.

quote:

Child poverty is up to 42 percent


I haven't seen a starving kid in the US in about never, so I'd like to know what "child poverty" looks like. What's the standard?

quote:

Lower Ninth Ward has seen its population drop by 80 percent in the last decade."



I don't even...

quote:

What does the thirty-four-minute blackout—caused by too much electricity—say about this country?"


Absolutely nothing.

quote:

We’re both: two Americas defined by structural inequality


Always in the "structure." AKA the man keeping people down, etc etc etc. Hey, lets add more structure to fix the structure is what he's getting at. I bet that will work.

quote:

Unofficially, this was a symbolic moment that could resonate far longer than the game itself.


I need to get paid to make shite up.

I've seen blackouts in Germany, Australia, France, Scotland, and Spain. Even L.A. has had numerous blackouts at stadiums during sporting events.


London had one on Saturday. Big fricking deal.

This guy has no clue about the 10,000 plus medical jobs that are being created and the construction to build these facilities. Do a bit of research idiot. I've lived here my entire 47 years and the city is better now than any other time in my life.
