One of the most compelling aspects of studying history are the "what-ifs" of our past. In our personal lives "what-ifs" can drive us mad "What if I?" "Why didn't she? If only he" but in the abstract "what-ifs" make for enjoyable party talk. Since I don't go to parties (I have children) I'll share some with you now…

Interesting. Wasn't the TV series "the Dome" set in the upper Mid-West?

Fascinating article, Bill. Thanks for sharing.

First I've heard of it. It was likely too big to get the funding required from the MN State Legislature, without federal aid. Tough sell in DC, indeed! A fully designed city of 250,000 people… I do not know if any city that size, has been pre-designed and actually built! Intriguing ideas. Cheers!
