Fargo: Wave of the Future

Fargo makes a David Brooks column:

Over the next 40 years, Kotkin argues, urban downtowns will continue their modest (and perpetually overhyped) revival, but the real action will be out in the compact, self-sufficient suburban villages. Many of these places will be in the sunbelt — the drive to move there remains strong — but Kotkin also points to surging low-cost hubs on the Plains, like Fargo, Dubuque, Iowa City, Sioux Falls, and Boise.

I'll take it, but I think I speak for many others when I ask if Detroit can finally get a little love too. C'mon man, can they catch a break already?

A Special Race

I've said to friends for months that an Obama-McCain race would be the most edifying one the country has seen in decades. It would pit two men with stark policy differences, a matching instinct for reform (though McCain's policies don't match his instincts nearly as well as they did eight years ago), and strong integrity.

We've seen multiple examples that the race will be different, including the series of Lincoln-Douglas that seems to be in the works, and both candidates decrying their parties' worst crimes of mindless partisanship.

Today, we learn from The Hill of another instance where Obama yet again puts his money where his mouth is on bringing people together.
