That would be "Islands" in general, not just the Galapagos Islands.

What @12 said, the problem is all the apartments in the city are Studio-2 bedroom for the most part, not really conducive to family rearing in size...

I really wish the Stranger would cease the use of quotations around hoarding in this article, implying that the landlord was just looking for an excuse or something. The situation is unfortunate and I hope they can find him housing, but the reality is he really was evicted for hoarding, after his residence FAILED a mandatory section 8 housing inspection due to the hoard.

This kind of political art isn't exactly something new...

@14 I noted this as well. It wasn't on their website previous to the news stories starting. In a downloadable "Garden Etiquette" form (produced before this) costumes are mentioned, but nothing about "Period Dress". I wonder how the gardens would respond to members of any number of Anabaptist sects....

@7 I don't really see the point in engaging bigots, but here goes. Drug use and homelessness can be linked, yes, but it's very much a chicken and egg question, while there are those who become homeless as a result of drug use, there are more who turn to drug use out of despair related to homelessness. This is why housing first works. Your comments show both a lack of compassion as well as ignorance.

Great food for thought article. I was also an unapologetic tomboy and nerd until high school, when I did finally embrace more femininity, but mostly through Vampire the Gathering. Recently in the storm of resurgent feminism (which I do agree with for the most part) I've come to realize how much my time as "one of the guys" has colored my outlook to what many women experience as harassment (ie, when I'm walking down the street and a guy asks for a smile, I've never experienced that as harassment, I just always flash a grin and a thumbs up and go about my day). It's been a contemplative time recently.
