Since Detroit is again in the news forefront, I thought some of you may be interested in the Detroit Issue of Whole Foods magazine, Dark Rye.
Whole Foods opened a new store in downtown Detroit last month. I'm not sure that an upscale food market is exactly what's needed, but I give them an A for effort. I found the magazine interesting, refreshing, and I like the way they put in the video clips yet still offered meaty text.

Like most of the country, we are in the middle of a heat wave. I have barely been outside most of this week because this kind of weather is not good for people with asthma.
