When I was looking at condos in Charlotte, there is a pretty clear pattern to housing prices. Same age construction, similar units. If the property is in a “white” neighborhood, it will sell for $100 sq/ft. If the house is in a “not all white” neighborhood, $45 sq/ft is not uncommon.
My close relatives thought I must not be thinking straight when I said I wanted to look at those places. In the Chicago apartment, my guess is that “white” people who speak English as their primary language was 10% of the renters. I felt right at home.
So I decided to hang with my peeps at Family Dollar and Walmart over on East Independence Boulevard – the main East/West surface street on the East side of town, heading to the SE.
When I got to the Walmart shopping center, I spotted the Super G International supermarket.
I didn’t see much in the flyer I recognized. I was racing the sun, so I didn’t go in. If I had, I would have looked around to see if I find food with transfats.
Did anyone else read the Cambridge study that showed no connection between consumption of saturated fats and heart disease? On fact, following the American Heart Association’s low fat diet (essentially replacing fats with carbohydrates) causes a massive increase in cardiac events.
