Today's News - May 30, 2002

Mentoring and internship has been the lifeblood of every craft, trade, and profession since…forever. Today's lead commentary comes to us courtesy of ArchVoices, an independent, proactive (and interactive) "think tank" dedicated to the bettering of architectural education and internship. It is a commentary by architect Robert Fielden, FAIA (a "senior practitioner") about the importance of education and internship in developing our future innovative - and socially responsible - industry professionals.

As for the rest of the news today, if it seems a bit longer than usual…it is. By the time you read this, an almost silent ceremony marking the end of the search for remains at Ground Zero will have begun - or already be over - and the rebuilding begins. It seemed only fitting to include a sampling of news and opinions on the topic of New York going forward…along with the rest of today's top headlines.
