Some recent items across the transom worth reading:
- Aaron Renn on federal urban policy;
- Mary Newsom chronicles former mayors Manny Diaz and Greg Nickels' thoughts on the contentious relationship between cities and states; and
- The Portland Mercury examines the fits and starts of the Rose City's South Waterfront redevelopment--home of the really cool aerial tram.
