    I've been absent from the boards for a couple years but am back, and back in the market for a planning job. Welfare has been good to me, but I'd still like to get my shot at planning.

    One question I hope to find the answer to among these boards or elsewhere: how many practicing planners live in the communities they serve? How much does it matter in hiring decisions? I can see benefits and drawbacks to both, but mainly find it hard to believe that all municipalities find planners who already live in their town or who are ready to move in.

    Anyway, it's good to be back.

    ...working for Welfare, not living on it.

    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

    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?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    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)

    Welcome (back) from Chicagoland!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

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