Bill Campbell: Dispatches from Retirement

As a historian, I’m strongly in favor of the promotion of institutional memory, so when Bill Campbell helps us remember where we’ve been, I’ll try to pass along some of his “Dispatches from Retirement.”  ;-))

Lenore,
 
I read a fascinating piece by Katherine Kersten in the Wall Street Journal today about Minneapolis:  “Turning the Twin Cities Into Sim City: The Metropolitan Council’s plans include making sure there is a proper mix of races and incomes in each suburb.”


If you want to get to the bottom of it, read the fascinating book by Stanley Kurtz, Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities”.  

 

 
 He spoke precisely on this topic at the Philadelphia Society meeting, October 2012; worth reminding our member to listen to again:
 
Bill
