Miller-McCune Shows Love on Valentine’s Day


I have this Google Alert set up that provides me with an email update of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) for my name – Adrian Salgado – that I usually just skim through since most of the alerts link back to this blog or my Active Rain blog.  However, this morning I awoke to a Google Alert with the words “Miller” and “McCune” attached to it and did the double-take a millisecond short of deleting it.

The article attached to the Alert, “The Slumming of Suburbia”, was published this morning by Miller-McCune, a solutions-based research magazine that “draws on academic research and other definitive sources to provide reasoned policy options and solutions for today’s pressing issues”.

The journalist behind the article, David Villano, emailed me a few weeks ago after stumbling upon a blog post I wrote a few months back titled “Suburbia: 21st Century Ghetto?”. He asked me to call him regarding some research he was conducting regarding a topic I am very passionate about – suburban America. After a few rounds of phone tag, we set a date and time for a phone interview, he asked me a few questions, I answered willingly, and the rest – as they say –  is history.

I am very honored to have a quote, my name, and a thought attached to something published in such a prestigious and well-respected publication. However, I am much more honored by the fact that there are others out there who share the same (very serious) concerns I have about American suburbia and the death of the “American Dream”.

It’s sad to think that the same ignorance that allowed the destruction of American cities may once again be the culprit responsible for the suburban demise.

I hope it’s not too late. For an urban dweller’s sake.

    Congratulations Adrian! Great article to be featured in. Doesn’t it feel great to know that you’re ‘ahead of the curve?’

    Thanks yous, ms. mendez.

    It definitely feels good to have the ability and (some) knowledge to voice my opinion on the topic, but I really don’t want to sit here 10-15 years from now and be like “See, I told you so”.

    I rather be recognized as one of the many voices that shed some light on this potentially huge problem in order to prevent some of the consequences of creating bland sameness.

    It doesn’t surprise me that a reputable magazine
    would want to get your two cents worth. Think we all do. Very nice. It’s all very true…” a stitch in time, saves nine.” A well deserved Kudos. : )
