    Another new Chicago area planner

    Hello all- I'm a recent graduate and new planner for a Chicago suburb. I'm looking forward to hounding you all for advice all the time! I'm really forging my own way with this job- the planner I replaced was their first and was there for about a year. Hoping to network with other new planners and find some commrades. Oh, I'll warn you ahead of time, I'm not the greatest speller. Please send all corrections to: aplannerdarkly@gmail.com. LOL.

    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 another Chicagolander!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.
