What the ‘Times’ Got Wrong About Nail Salons

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/20/upshot/as-women-take-over-a-male-dominated-field-the-pay-drops.html FUCK THAT

http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/07/03/opinion/sunday/the-myth-of-cosmopolitanism.html I largely agree with the author. Interacting with a significant fraction of the people here is like interacting with the same soul put into a thousand different bodies. It's a mundane sameness and cloistered attitudes that smothers out the interesting part of life. Feels like they all want to live out the West Wing or something.
