Alabama modern

Yes, I am one of those people who gets all their news from the New York Times. Actually not all of it. Just most of it. The rest comes from NPR and the Daily Show.

Here's what I found today. Evidently, Hale County in Alabama -- where James Agee and Walker Evans chronicled the plight of Depression-era sharecroppers in their classic Let Us Know Praise Famous Men is now a hotbed of modern architecture thanks to some help from a Auburn University program.

It's nice to see modern architecture, which was meant to offer decent, affordable housing to the masses, actually do just that.
