One of the incredible things about writing this blog is that people contact me all the time with reading and listening recommendations. Yesterday two people separately contacted me regarding a book by Richard Florida called The Great Reset and urged me to listen to a podcast of Mr. Florida.

I have heard of his prior book, Rise of the Creative Class, but what I listened to was something much different and something spot on to what we are talking about here. I ordered the book and, with two-day shipping, will have it here for a review by next week. In the meantime, check out his appearance at the Aspen Ideas Festival. Great Strong Towns-like content.

Back to our Brainerd/Baxter neighborhood analysis Wednesday - sorry for the delay on that, but sometimes other things pop up that need to be tended to.
