(Weekly Standard) Vice President Joe Biden, speaking earlier today at the Chamber of Commerce, talked of inner city Detroit women from the "hood," which is apparently slang for neighborhood:
"You know, I was out at UST-Global--I was out in--I went all around the country to take a look at some of the programs that were going on," said Biden. "And I went to Detroit, which is just getting of its knees. I mean, Detroit has been battered. And there's an outfit out--not there, it's a national outfit--called UST-Global, and they're in a sense (they do more than this) but part of what they do is, they're a placement operation for large IT and small IT firms--I think you guys here at the Chamber know them.
