|The Burnham Blog by Patrick T. Reardon
This blog—that starts today—is about history, planning and the future.
It's rooted in the recognition that we live in a world that is created by plans—and by the failure to make plans.
It is written by Patrick T. Reardon, a Chicagoan, born and bred. He has been writing about the city, its region and planning issues, mainly in the Chicago Tribune, for nearly 40 years.
Here's a taste of today's post:
