Last week's cover story, "Reinventing police" by Bruce Rushton, included many ideas and hopes for the future, along with plenty of reasons for building something new and different where the old police department used to be. There is an opportunity now for reinventing almost everything. Even this summer, schools are being reinvented as the role of parents, homes, volunteers, computers and food become more important than buildings in educating children. Downtown is being reinvented, as entrepreneurs step forward and rooftop venues become possible. Anti-racism is being reinvented, as less of a daunting chore, more of a necessity for surviving and thriving. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
