1 in 4

Put down your drink, because we've got some sobering stats here. (Wait, maybe you want your drink back.)

By next year, one in four homes in Detroit will stand empty; right now, 18 percent of addresses in the city feature, uh, nobody living there. This is up, way up, from just two years ago. Then, there were 41,802 vacant residences; this year, we've got 72,527.

Tune into NPR's All Things Considered this evening for the story; a preview can be found here.

We're not Detroit, and we're easily 1 in 4.

I'll tell you where off the web.
