Brilliant headline; the runners-up not bad either.

Kate Boo's book on the slums of Mumbai is a really compelling read. Hear +Steve Inskeep interview her on Morning Edition today.

Two cities showcase a universal theme of urban life: our struggle to deal with neighbors who are different from us. http://www.theatlanticcities.com/neighborhoods/2011/12/managing-diversity/704/

This story is as old as America -- older actually. We have been a melting pot of differing cultures, faiths and languages since before we became a nation. How we deal with this, and learn what it means to be Americans, is a question we still grapple with today.

On way to Miami Book Fair at 11a http://bit.ly/trXzn1 - having dropped in on a good part of the South the last three days. Drank Sweetwater 420 in Atlanta (which the bartender seemed made a point of putting in a plastic cup). Fell into a conversation in Nashville with a guy who knew Chet Atkins. Met friends for an outdoor meal in Miami - mofongo, where they bring your meat on top of a massive pile of chopped plantains. We sat there and talked about a Malaysian company's effort to make Miami the home of the world's largest casino, if the law is changed to allow it. Heard talk of Latin American and even Russian elites buying Miami condos: construction is resuming downtown, which already looks a little like Oz by the beach.

Santorum won AL, MS. Romney won Hawaii & American Samoa, where AP says about 70 people attended the caucus "at Toa Bar & Grill in Pago Pago." Wonder if it resembled that bar scene from "The Descendants."

Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes is taking a plunge on old media, buying The New Republic. In his first broadcast interview, Hughes tells Morning Edition he thinks there's a shortage of long-form journalism--and that while it's hard to read long articles on your PC, they're getting more pleasant to read on tablets like the iPad.

It sounds like he will be a wonderful steward of a critical voice of progressive politics. Good luck, Chris!

Seems the US could have gotten Dr. Afridi out of Pakistan, the least we could have done for him. Hopefully the health workers won't face any further punishments.

Reed Johnson, of the LA Times, has written a vivid analysis of what I'm driving at with "Instant City" - the story of Karachi, a city that, as he puts it, "best defines our restless, rickety present age," an exploding and explosive metropolis that's "a metaphor for the developing world, teetering between modernity and tradition, democracy and authoritarianism, East and West."

In a related story, the LAT photographer got me to lean against a road sign, and a woman slowed down her car during the shoot to ask if he was available for hire.

We always think that rural Development is lacking in developing nations; but, it's the unplanned Urban areas that are at a much greater array.
