Before a backdrop of the MoMA sculpture garden Eli Broad awarded his prize to the Brownsville district along the Texas-Mexico border. I overheard a Broward staffer say she jumped up when she heard the B but then had to sit down. The only contender I talked to was Rudy Crew who represented Miami, awkwardly, at a superintendents’ panel, though he had been recently fired. The current presiding superintendent (who has a sex scandal going on) was sitting in the audience during the panel.
A funny thing was that since both Rudy and I are between jobs, neither of us had a card to offer the other.
