I remain a professor at the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University.  Every fall my wife Deborah, a geographer at the College of Staten Island/City University of New York, and I teach a course on land-use planning at the Environmental Studies Program at Princeton University.  We were in South Dakota in June filming a forthcoming documentary tentatively titled “Buffalo Commons: Return of the Buffalo.” We continue our Buffalo Commons work on the land-use future of the Great Plains and are expanding our approach to other depopulating places such as the Lower Mississippi Delta; Buffalo, New York; and comparable regions and cities abroad.  I was interviewed twice on National Public Radio this summer, and in August a front-page story on our Buffalo Commons work appeared in USA Today.
