I watched a most amazing program on PBS the other night. Blueprint America: Beyond the Motor City examined how Detroit, a symbol of America’s diminishing status in the world, may come to represent the future of transportation and (seeming lack of) progress in America. It firmly jivved with my belief that we cannot escape the fact that our future is in being the regional entity of southeastern Michigan. Most successful and growing communities owe their fortunes to the notion of being regional collectives that embrace greater resources because of their cooperative approach.
The program video is available on the PBS website:
