This week, we welcomed Dan Maginn as a guest writer of a four part series that explores the myths and realities surrounding affordable housing. In his first post, he begins with a discussion of size, an important yet surprisingly undervalued variable in any dialogue on the subject.In light of the recession, we occupied a bit of our webspace looking at how the other half lives, the best and worst places to look for jobs, and the effectiveness of the Cash for Clunkers program.We also caught up on the tortoise-wind energy debate and learned about the merits of diversity in produce, design journalism, and the history and business of craft beer.We hope we've inspired you in some way this week. Until Monday then, have a splendid weekend.Photo by David Newsom, from this week's LOOK piece on SunFlowers in Austin.
