Growth and change is scary. Klingon Chancellor Gorkon called the future “The Undiscovered Country” – a place where anything can and will happen.
Over the last few years, Buffalo and the people of Western New York have walked swiftly into that undiscovered country.
In discussions with Tom Dolina, he was concerned that the progress Buffalo has experienced in the past few years was too swift.
A gleaming medical campus now stands where there were once throngs of angry pro-choice and pro-life protesters. No longer do we cope with the decrepit Commercial Slip sewer pit, with a vacant Memorial Auditorium idly surrounded by vast surface parking lots. Now we embrace the bustle of Canalside, with a vacant One Seneca Tower idly surrounded by vast manicured lawns.
Many cities in the west have experienced similar rapid progress and growth… shedding their old identities and adopting new ones.
In successful cases, the communities and people adopt California-like values. Portland, Oregon is where the 90s are alive! Austin, Texas keeps it weird! Boise, Idaho is building a long delayed hotel next to their Whole Foods.

From the high tech lifestyle of the Bay Area (cost permitting) to the tremendously productive agricultural lifestyle of the Central Valley (drought permitting) to the culture defining influence of celebrities (Scientology permitting), California is a diverse state of many backgrounds coming together for the common good.
