Living New Deal Map and Newsletter

Above: The Living New Deal (LND) has mapped over 6,000 still-existing sites, structures, and works of art from the New Deal era--and there are many more thousands to add. LND argues that "government can work for all the people by creating useful infrastructure, jobs for the unemployed, and things of beauty like public murals and elegant buildings." Isn't that a more positive philosophy than "tax cuts for the rich" and "trickle-down economics" which result in wealth for the already-wealthy and stagnant wages & shrinking job opportunities for everyone else? See LND's latest newsletter here. Also, consider supporting LND by volunteering, submitting a site to map, donating funds, or spreading the word.
