The Wild Wild Northwest

 

In 2012 the people of Josephine County, Oregon lost over half their police force and cut loose a number of prisoners due to massive budget cuts. It's been called 'the wild west' for a reason- crime is skyrocketing but the locals aren't flinching. Instead of raising taxes, they're literally sticking to their guns and some are taking law enforcement into their own hands.

Nude on The Menu

 

Lower Manhattan's "The Raven Club" lists sculptor Skye Ferrante's art as made to order, right off the bottle service menu. Whether he is at the club, flanked by his rainbow-haired body guards, or he is in the quiet comfort of his studio, Ferrante sculpts his models nude, using one continuous piece of wire. "I am in my nude period," he says. "It will last a while."
