With all the talk of being "creative" and "cool", a lot of the current debate about Economic Development has me thinking the industry is run by 15 year old girls.
Did you like see, Portland she came in today with that bitchin' Pearl District, it was totally rad! And what was Cleveland thinking with those Flats? Gag me with a spoon! Totally! That like Richard Florida guy said we need to be creative like San Francisco, but they like have 11% unemployment, ewwww, grote to the max! And I mean Fargo has like 4% unemployment, bitchin! North Dakota should be like the Galleria of Jobs! but they're not cool enough to sell urban planning books - for sure! And Michigan said they have cool cities, but I was like bag Detroit!
