Read Anything By

This month's Read Anything By recommendation: Howard Mansfield

   We have everywhere an absence of memory. Architects sometimes
   talk of building with context and continuity in mind, religious
   religious leaders call it tradition, social workers say it is a
   sense of community, but it is memory we have banished from our
   cities. We have speed and power, but no place. Travel, but no
   destination. Convenience, but no use.
