I'm about to embark on several of Florida's Creative Class tomes. We're having a public input meeting concerning the state's draft report on Rural Indiana and I think that his work has probably informed many of the committee. Doubt very much that I really get too far before tomorrow evening, especially in view of the fact that my income tax return is still underway.
RISE 2020 is the program, this site should have a link to the draft report.
I've been reading an interesting book about the Oxford English Dictionary, still on the historical overview part and haven't really gotten into the OED itself.
