About This Blog

Barry Glenn used to love to play Monopoly—until he learned that unlimited borrowing from the bank wasn’t really allowed. And doesn’t that just about sum up today’s economic climate, Mr. Moneybags? All of which is to say that this blog has nothing to do with the economy or Monopoly. “Metropoly” just sounded good. Barry, managing editor of Orlando magazine since April 2009, likes to ask himself a lot of questions while driving or watching Cops. Things like “Why did they only widen this road to three lanes when they probably had money for four?” Or “Why are pigs on barbecue signs always so jolly?” Sometimes logic doesn’t wear a seatbelt. Please join Barry as he swerves into the median and overturns.
