I have links, everybody
I don’t want to intrude (I haven’t been back here in a while), but I’d like to share with you some of my recent favorite websites, which are worth visiting every day:
The Urbanophile - Aaron Renn’s thoughtful and provocative blog on urban design/sustainability. Lots of great analysis on that often happens to center on Indianapolis or other midwestern cities. (Recent Indy-related keepers: here, here, here, and here.)
The Atlantic Cities - A constantly interesting stream of articles, infographics, and what-have-yous that all have something to do with cities.
The Salt (NPR’s Food Blog) - It’s probably basically a collection of NPR’s food-related stories throughout the day, but they’re quick, fresh, readable nuggets that often give me something to new mention at the dinner table. Or, you know, wherever.
Propublica - A fairly recently established independent investigative journalist newsroom that’s just the place to go if you want to be discouraged about government and businesses. Also their Officials Say The Darndest Things Tumblr is pretty great.
Tax Policy Center - If you want to not sound like an idiot at the next family gathering when someone starts talking about taxes.
