Iowa? I don't owe ha' nothin...

I just read this op-ed in the Des Moines Register (that's right, baby, the Des Moines Register) that suggested the solution for Iowa's population leakage problem is to become more like Portland, OR. Progressive planning, transit-oriented development, investment in the arts, ect. I gotta say that seems a better idea then repopulating with south americans like they've been trying. (of course if you really want to be like Portland you've really got to build a mountain, pine forests and and ocean an hour away... but i guess you work with what you've got, huh...)

I don't know what's stranger - the fact you're reading the Des Moines register in your free time, or the fact that they're saying "Let's be like Portland!"

;)

BTW, tell Jessica to awaken from her blog slumber. Every one of her faithful readers can't hold their breath much longer. :)
