A long pondered but only lately realized blog about economics, politics, evaluation, econometrics, academia, college football and whatever else comes to mind.

On being an Ann Arbor townie
The author of this piece on Ann Arbor townies has a broader definition than I would have, but it is a fine piece nonetheless. I would say that someone who teachers or is a student at the university cannot be a townie, even if, like one of my colleagues, she grew up here and has townie friends. But that is really beside the point. I think really the point is that an article called "On Being a Long-Time Ann Arbor Resident" would not sound as interesting.
