Walking And Biking In Cities Rocks, But Hold The Rage (The Weekly Chatter)
We try to publish 7-10 posts a week and try to be relevant on both hyper-local issues as well as for a broader audience tuned in to designing places for people anywhere. Reader numbers continue to increase, so something is clicking.
What is it that keeps you coming back? Is it informative? Entertaining? Oddly small-town compelling?
Now, what is that worth to you?
There have been
many some generous supporters of the work that goes into writing about and advocating for the issues raised on this blog.
A Saturday edition.
