I just got through readin... and would agree it's well-written prose as well.

this part is interesting especially: "What struggling communities need are a handful of hard-nosed individuals to regain their sense of purpose and rapidly act in ways that creates living-wage work for many where they matter - within the heart of struggling communities. The flowers, music and entrepreneurs of the year awards will most certainly follow."

It's somewhat silly to expect one, enormous "vision" to take the city somewhere... but I'm a firm believer that it takes individuals with vision to take this city anywhere. the ability to see what can be, money where their mouth is, and a backbone of steel to see it through. That's the kind of vision that I believe we need far more of in this city, and it will inevitably attract others...

and at certain levels, we need a larger vision to accomplish things like allowing us to rezone properties to different uses, or focus on particular industries so that people with vision will even know what potential exists for them to latch onto and build anew.
