Federal urban and metropolitan agenda and a crashing teleprompter / by urbanexus

METRO - 2009-07-13 - White house press release titleOn July 13, 2009, President Obama spoke at a gathering of folks interested in urban and metropolitan policy to, as described in the White House Press Office release, " .  .  . address the next steps in development of an urban and metropolitan agenda."  The full text of the release is available at http://bit.ly/TWV5Q .  The question now is whether this event will be rembered as a beginning of substantive work on addressing urban and metropolitan policy or as the event during which a teleprompter fell apart while President Obama was speaking.  For a video of the telpepromter crash see  http://bit.ly/lu1zx .
