This has to be one of the most lucrative, convoluted, and absurd scams ever to grace the pages of Craigslist.

I don't think these "experts" who claim that 20somethings will suddenly move to the suburbs when they have kids and start buying cars again en masse have ever spoken to a 20something. Some will, but some won't (or will opt for one instead of two) and the next generation of 20somethings will buy even fewer cars. The era of the car is ending.

Similarly, they attempt to equate higher Internet use with lower car use. The virtual connections supplant IRL interactions? Bullshit. The simplistic conclusion they draw from the cited research is misleading. "I gave up my car because of the Internet." How about something slightly more reasonable: "I gave up my car because the Internet has created efficient car sharing programs and made public transportation more predictable."

The only thing better than Pollan's excellent coverage of our microbiome--which stands to be the pioneering issue for 21st century health--are Hannah Whitaker's photos accompanying the article.

Don't let governments squelch your access to cute cat videos.

"Part of the reason so many Americans don’t pay federal income taxes is that Republicans have passed a series of very large tax cuts that wiped out the income-tax liability for many Americans ... So whenever you hear that half of Americans don’t pay federal income taxes, remember: Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush helped build that."
