    Greetings from Chicago

    Being new to the forum, I wanted to introduce myself. I'm not a planner, though I do take an interest in what affects our urban regions (as well as the rural ones.) Regional cooperation that does not stop at municipal boundaries is of great interest to me so it seemed natural that I should join a forum where others would have something to say about this and probably a host of other issues.

    Welcome from the Florida panhandle.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    Hello, from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Welcome from a fellow Chicagolander!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Welcome from Minnesota.

    Welcome from the Hoosier State along the Ohio River.

    Our MSA and MPO cross over into Kentucky.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
