From The Chicago Sun Times:
Taste of Chicago is returning to its roots – they have banned all restaurants that are not within the city limits. Every major city (and probably most cities, period) has this identity crisis and a serious tension between the inner city and the suburbs. No one thinks of LA as only that city within the boundary line. They're basically saying that any food from outside the city limits is not authentically "Chicago".
(Also, it turns out I'm genetically gorgeous :) )
From the Arizona Republic
People say the massive shift in environmental policy was the most important untold story of the Bush administration. Now, Obama is using the same quiet techniques to shift policy again ... the other way.
From the Detroit News
An epidemic of utility theft in Detroit – From the article:
As many as 70,000 Michigan homes and businesses – or roughly three percent of DTE's customers – are stealing natural gas and electricity. While the bulk of the illegal hookups are in Detroit, the thefts are found in nearly every community throughout the region.
Another story from Detroit – 2010 will be even busier for filmmaking in Michigan if the state retains its incentives – Hugh Jackman's 80 million dollar Real Steel is just one of them.
