A commentary on the advantages of small-town "commutes" is now on the Center For Rural Strategies online national rural newspaper, the Daily Yonder.

I am now a regular contributor to the Daily Yonder.

Here is the explanation the Daily Yonder's mission from its Web site:

The Daily Yonder is published on the web by the Center for Rural Strategies. Editors Julie Ardery and Bill Bishop have written for national magazines, for newspapers in Kentucky and Texas and authored books on American politics, art and culture. In the 1980s, they owned and ran the award-winning Bastrop County Times, the weekly newspaper in Smithville, Texas.

The Daily Yonder was developed with the support of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and the Media Democracy Fund (a project of the Proteus Fund).
