America's Most Literate Cities, 2013 -
Drawing from a variety of available data resources, the America’s Most Literate Cities study ranks the largest cities (population 250,000 and above) in the United States. This study focuses on six key indicators of literacy: number of bookstores, educational attainment, Internet resources, library resources, periodical publishing resources, and newspaper circulation.
The original study was published online in 2003 at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The complete 2005-2012 rankings can be accessed here.

This is exactly the hypocrisy I’ve been pointing out for years.
every guy who played in the NFL should have health insurance for as long as they live. And we don’t. —

And maybe that’s *also* true for factory workers and miners and everyone else whose professions have a discernible effect on their health? And who don’t get millions per year for it? #justasking
Or perhaps everyone regardless of everything should have health insurance for life.
Laugh All You Want, Google Glass Will Take Over the World -
onthemedia dug into the NPR archives to unearth this little gem: a 1981 piece about the walkman, in which people said things like
“Yeah, people do kind of look funny and they kind of look, like, you know, pretty smug when I’m wearing them and everything.”
Today at hole foods, this bullshit.
The Crackpot Brigade is out on patrol!
