Fall River on NPR

Hey - Fall River, MA, city of my origin, got mentioned on NPR!

Robert Reich, Clinton’s Labor Secretary and former candidate for Massachusetts governor, mentioned the Spindle City in an editorial about the anniversary of Katrina and the plight of displaced poor. It also appeared on his weblog:

Sometimes cities actively try to get rid of their poorest citizens. Not long ago officials in Fall River, Massachusetts, tried to raze a low income housing project and not replace it with any other affordable housing.
.

Er, wait. That’s not a good thing. Never mind.

Good or no, it does not surprise me the FR would do that.
