Homegrown Comeback

Could it be that Tucson is eating its way out of poverty and food insecurity?

Or to ask such a big hairy question in another manner: "How have Tucson's citizens and businesses fared since the Great Recession devastated our community a decade ago?"

By the beginning of 2009, the Old Pueblo had been hit harder than most other US metro areas by bank and mortgage company scandals. But what, if anything, has helped our community's economic recovery and changed its course for the better over the last 10 years?

While I am no more of a historian that most of you are who are reading this, I feel I must go back not just a decade but an entire century in time to answer these questions. That's how we might come to understand where Tucson has come from and where it is going.

So please stick with me for a moment, while I seat you next to me in the Wayback Machine and take you to see the Old Pueblo as it existed and as some of its citizens regarded it in the last millennium.
