Quote of the day: on civic character


Many of these places have been beaten down so hard for so long that a sort of defeatist attitude has set in. This can include bitterness about what was lost, a self-loathing mindset, and cynicism and negativity about any proposed efforts to improve things.

Familiar? I've called this mindset "The Grumpy Old Man Party" and other talk of "glass half empty". And it's all too sadly true.
