And I’ve been here soaking it all in. Several thousand men, women, and children in downtown Detroit, and we can scarcely get a mention from the mainstream press, while the Tea Party continues to soak up bandwidth. I’d say “amazing” but of course it isn’t.

For those of you nearby I am presenting at a workshop on spatial inequality tomorrow (Friday) at 10am. The title of the workshop is “Borders, Buildings & Bounding: Cross Cutting Solutions to Displacement & Devaluation of Communities of Color.” I’ll be speaking about spatial inequality and its different forms, focusing on a dynamic called “municipal underbounding.”

In other news this week President Obama rolled out a new Fatherhood Initiative. I talked about it like a dog on NPR.

Well…not really like a dog. I’ve too much respect for dogs.
