When in despair…

…read Rich’s blog. Rich Harwood is a real voice for civic and democratic change. I’ve known him for more years than I care to admit, first simply as someone with a good ear and knack for focus group research, someone able to hear what regular folks are saying about their condition and their concerns about public life. In the past several years he’s taken these experiences along with his own sense of things to be a beacon for democratic change. Hats off to Rich.
