New Haven Urban Renewal
While leafing through some books at the bookstore, I noticed a volume called "The Hidden Terror Network in America." In it, I read that Al Qaeda sleeper cells are all over America, from San Franciso to Chicago to New York. Even Rahleigh, NC has an Al Qaeda sleeper cell. But conspicuously absent from the list was New Haven, CT. Sure, New Haven has gone through a good period of downtown revival and has some pharmaceutical companies lining up to move here, but if it doesn't have an Al Qaeda sleeper cell, it'll always be a second-rate city. Thriving downtown, Professional sports team, Al Qaeda sleeper cell- that's the progression of a great American city.
