Vanity Fair catches
that the current issue of the self-described socialist magazine Monthly Review has an article all about the economic devastation that is Braddock
. The full article isn't online, but some may want to go track down a copy. They like others are more and more making the apocalyptic analogy of Braddock to what may be about to happen to some of the auto towns elsewhere. NYT has a few articles at least mentioning Braddock coming out soon as well..... including some video. Keep an eye out for those. As for me, I think I have already said my piece
but on Detroit. AP has a story about how bad things are there which extend beyond the auto industry's problems
. Nonetheless, Detroit's employment trends
are dire already and looking for an unbelievably bad quarter coming up.
