Quote for the Day

Being Millennial to the extreme right now: reading and highlighting a book, The Wealth of Cities by John Norquist; checking email from the Iphone; posting to the blog; and having a beer and lunch at a neighborhood bar, or "third place."

Extracted from said book, 'Mark I. Gelfand in A Nation of Cities,
"The Democratic mayor of Richmond told the meeting (ed. note: at the 1935 United States Council of Mayors meeting discussing how to deal with the depression) that if municipalities would simply learn to live within their incomes, all their problems would disappear."
Apropos, given the post/discussion on municipal budgets lately.
