A Paragraph to Ponder

From the Dallas Morning News yesterday - - High-profile items boost city, but wealth gap grows:

"Compared with 22 other peer cities, Dallas was next-to-last in the rate of growth in college educated population. (Detroit was last)."

The article also pointed out the paradox of civil engineering - - the difficult balancing act of designing and constructing high-profile projects deemed necessary to attract business and new people (especially young new people) to the city while effectively engaging in asset management and just fixing the potholes.  Not an easy balancing act.
