On Tuesday, we posted the pic below from a downtown Minneapolis mall, taken last year by Carol Roth. She writes now that her husband, Neil Taylor, went by the same spot and took a second picture. You'll notice, of course, that HOPE is gone and RESPECT is being whitewashed over.
America had better start investing in the infrastructure of its cities, Matt Yglesias writes today on Atlantic Cities. Just look at Occupy Wall Street, he suggests. It's not Occupy Strip Mall. "Nobody wants to occupy the strip mall or the office park or the park and ride lot," he says. "Not today and not ever."
Ye in the suburbs, a different answer? Anyone got Occupy Suburbia where they live?
