There are eight million stories in the naked city.

And if my calculations are correct, each one of those mundane little bastards owes $112.5 mil in unfunded liabilities.

So some of those stories had better get to work saving. The government’s charity and compassion and welcoming of the huddled masses yearning to work cheaply and off the books on roofs or hanging drywall isn’t just going to pay for itself, you know.

  1. “There are eight million stories in the naked city.”

    …and when the wind blows just right it sounds like an enormous flock of pigeons taking off.

  2. If we perform a different calculation, we can see that lawlessness at the heart of the machinery of nominal law engenders (O, look at the cute fetus! He has his father’s injustice written on his face!) lawlessness everywhere: the fruit of authoritarianism. So, y’know, paying isn’t even a formality.

  3. I have it on good authority that the Chinese plan to take over the Federal Reserve, it being pretty much theirs anyway.

    So don’t worry. All is well.

  4. If the Red Chinese do that, cookie, I bet they’ll make a fortune.

  5. should we do a fundraiser to clothe the city?

  6. They filmed Robocop in Dallas because nobody want to go anywhere near Detroit in the mid to late 80’s. Robocop 2 they filmed in Houston. Robocop 3 they filmed in Atlanta.

    Naked cities should put some clothes on.

  7. There are 8 million ways to play the native lays and every single one of them is left, far left.
