The best part of this, that very few people caught, is that they are for now only going to sell the "plus-size" clothing online. Not at the stores. Apparently, Abercrombie has standards. The "fat, uncool" women cannot go into the stores. They can shop online, where they belong.
Republicans are looking at changing demographics around the country, and they don't like what they see. Forced to confront this new reality, they must choose between changing their policies, or changing the rules whenever they can.
This has been a big week for Michigan's future. A federal judge allowed Detroit to continue its journey into bankruptcy, a decision that has caught the attention of city pensioners, art lovers everywhere, and soon, a federal appeals court.
I am forced into a dangerous melodrama between me and my loved one -- my television.
Last Thursday, the Detroit Lions did something they hadn't done in the previous nine years of their annual Thanksgiving Day showdown -- they won.
A political prisoner changed my life. That man, now free -- always free, really -- wore number 466 at Robben Island prison in South Africa. Today, he died. I know Nelson Mandela won't have the opportunity to read this. But I do need to write it.
In the past two days we've seen a federal judge rule that Detroit can go bankrupt, putting its workers' pensions in jeopardy, and we have seen Illinois' legislature vote for substantial cuts in its retirees' pensions. Undoubtedly these two actions are just the tip of the iceberg.
Essentially everyone I know has worked as a barista, including myself. So I understand that the barista is the unsung hero of the service industry. What I have issue grasping is why people insist on treating the slingers of their drug of choice so poorly.

Pope Francis' recent encyclical is sending shock waves around the world. In addition to exhortations to the faithful, Evangelii Gaudium ("The Joy of the Gospel") packs a scathing critique of "unbridled" capitalism and consumerism.
When Ford introduced the car in 1964, it was cheered as a "car for young America." After all, the leading edge of the baby boom was just turning 18. How much brand love is there for Mustang despite being on track to sell fewer than 80,000 this year? There are 5.5 million Facebook followers for Mustang. That's what comes from 50 uninterrupted years of selling more than nine million copies of the same marque.

Our credit card number has been stolen at least three times in the past six months. I blame it on my husband who regularly leaves the card at various scuzzy food joints. He blames it on me for shopping online. It's probably both or neither or just the fact that credit card theft is on the rise.
Pensioners, Wall Street and art lovers. That's a coalition that could get Washington and state capitals to honestly and openly confront looming municipal bankruptcies.

When it comes to engineering, in particular, few places outrank Michigan, which is heavily bolstered by the automotive industry.
For years now, we have known this Ann Arbor-based hip-hop emcee as Buff1, but after taking some time off to contemplate his life, he's returned with a new album Victim Of A Modern Age donning his real name.
So ruled the judge, paving the way for the largest municipal bankruptcy in our nation's history. Detroit's liabilities are estimated at $18 billion with a 'b.' The next largest city bankruptcy was San Bernardino, CA, in 2012 with a debt level of $46 million...with an 'm.'
"Did she just fall off a treadmill?" I blinked once, and then I let out a sigh of embarrassment and confirmation that just as I was able to see the crowd of people around me, they could also see me.

Last December, the state legislature used the lame duck session to shove through wildly unpopular restrictions on women's health care. Now, as December rolls back around, here comes another dangerous and deeply unpopular measure: A ban on private abortion insurance coverage.
Transit Of Venus,
You may catch it as you're commuting home or walking into the house. At first it looks like a plane but it doesn't move like a plane. It just glistens and when you stare at it long enough you will wonder, "Wow, what is that thing?
