“Who Lost the Cities?”

Suppose you came across a picture of a run-down big city neighborhood. Would you be able to identify when the photo was taken? 1960? 1970? 1980? 1990? 2000? 2010? Chances are you couldn’t. I don’t know that I could either, unless the photo included people whose clothing and hairstyles might provide the answer.

In National Review, Kevin D. Williamson asks the question: “Who Lost the Cities?” My father loves to visit different cities, receive their monthly magazines, and examine why some succeed and some fail. In addition, I have included the Pretenders’ “My City Was Gone.” It’s the theme song for America’s #1 talk-show host.
