In the News: DUSP Student writes on the Boston Marathon Bombing

DUSP MCP student Andy Cook contributed a "Letter from MIT: An Urban Planning Student on the Boston Marathon Bombing and a City in Lockdown."  Among other things, the letter ponders, "What can we as planners do to help make peace in a violent world?," concluding that "the role of the planner is to confront [the world's] contradictions head-on, to untangle the complex adaptive systems that are either broken or were simply built wrong in the first place. Inevitably, this means confronting entrenched power structures as well."
