"Protein" is easily the vaguest thing I’ve put on my grocery list, but a very important thing.

I’m honestly reblogging this because someone put a John Adams song on Tumblr and it wasn’t me.

From left to right: “Wolf Hall” (suggested because I bought “Bring Up the Bodies” on my Nook), “An Abundance of Katherines” (suggested because I bought a John Green book I gave a one-star rating to, I think?), “US Guys” (Suggested because I’m reading LeDuff’s book “Detroit: An American Autopsy”) and “Detroit City is the Place to Be” (Suggested because I’m reading “Detroit: An American Autopsy”).
One of these things is not like the others.

"'Blighted areas' are those improved or vacant areas with blighting influences that are impacting the public safety, health, morals, or welfare of the community, and are substantially impairing the growth of the tax base in the area. 'Conservation areas' are those improved areas which are deteriorating and declining and soon may become blighted if the deterioration is not abated."

"

It came to light in 2001 that Edgewater Medical Center had been defrauding Medicare. Among the procedures the hospital was performing were unnecessary angioplasties, and two patients died from the unneeded procedures. Eventually, the fraud came to light and Medicare decided to stop reimbursing Edgewater Medical Center. The hospital closed in December 2001 after a string of financial problems, left in a state that seems as if everyone up and left.

Twelve years later, Edgewater Medical Center still sits empty, a dangerous eyesore.
