It makes me sad that Cleveland has been in the news a lot lately, the focus of stories on foreclosure and job layoffs. 10,000 vacant houses and one of the highest poverty rates in the country, it's sad that the place I grew up is now suffering the most with the turn of events with the economy.

here's the link to the NYT's article

my mom was telling me that houses are doing exactly as the above house shows, "No Copper." A house that was being renovated next to a family friend was burglarized of it's brand new copper pipes. Sad that something seemingly so mundane as pipes are still targeted because of what it is made out of.
