The epicenter of progressive culture

Earlier this year, Newsweek magazine identified America’s top 10 dying cities, one of which was my very own Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Having lost $30 million and close to a million readers in a single year, Newsweek knows a thing or two about dying.

In response, Grand Rapids’ own Rob Bliss decided to do this, with the help of locally-based Creo Productions and about 5,000 Grand Rapidians (is that what we’re called?)…

Had to give a shout out…especially to my friends at Creo. I’ve gotten to work with them on a couple video projects and am always impressed.

Update: Newsweek is distancing itself from the original “dying cities” story and showing some love for GR on their Facebook page. Thanks, Newsweek. We hope you don’t die either.
