MetroTrends week in review

  Last week, MetroTrends bloggers brought evidence to bear on both current controversies and future visions:

  • John Roman and Mitch Downey assemble key facts on homicides to show that Stand Your Ground laws, like Florida’s, likely lead to miscarriages of justice.
  • Margery Turner argues that affordable housing is a critical ingredient in DC’s efforts to ensure kids’ success in school.
  • Barbara Ormond envisions a future of urban bike commuting – and the health benefits it could bring.
