CHICAGO — Enough from the national press! If someone dies, they cover it. If there’s violence, they cover it. If the economy crashes and burns, they cover it. But if there’s slow, localized economic improvement, they don’t cover it.
If we rely on television and newspapers to tell us what to do next, we’re in trouble. It’s up to us to anticipate the future and begin to move forward. We are the experts in our own markets, and should know what to expect from them.
