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?
