Today’s News - Wednesday, June 30, 2010

•   Stephens takes on the newest land use challenges for planners in California (and perhaps elsewhere): "Defining where 'legal' marijuana could go" is "like fencing in a pasture for unicorns."

•   Iovine on Phifer's North Carolina Museum of Art: it "requires attention and time...to engage with its pleasures"; the architecture is "both wonderful and problematic."
