Cities of Intellect, and the perqs of living in one

Yesterday, after seeing the News' article about one of our area poly-political families, I decided that the Arborwiki page on Al Wheeler needed a little attention. In the course of googling up additional sources, I stumbled on a paper on affordable housing and homelessness advocacy in Ann Arbor in the 1970s and '80s.
Thanks to our proximity to EMU, and their lovely library-cards-to-any-city-resident policy, not 20 minutes later* I was able to have the dead tree version of the paper in hand.
The fun part is that now I can blog this experience, completing the irony of the situation - blogging about a wiki entry about journal articles on class struggle and homelessness is very bourgie 2.0. Especially when you're blogging about the irony of the situation itself.
*It was, in fact, not 20 minutes later. I did some laundry and raked leaves in between, but, for dramatic effect, we'll compress all that into a montage and say it was only 20 minutes.
