Conservatives, liberals, populists, libertarians… and now, the localists

A couple stories down on our home page news feed (or here) you’ll find a slanted-toward-hopeless perspective on the challenges in rural America written by NYT columnist Paul Krugman. His suggestion: he doesn’t know how America can fix [insert-name-of-small-town-here].

And in a great reversal of perspective, another NYT columnist, David Brooks, makes the argument that the solution to America’s challenges starts in places like [insert-name-of-small-town-here].
