We can be part of the urban renewal. Saint Ambrose had a similar situation to deal with as the Bishop of Milan sixteen hundred years ago. We don't necessarily agree with everything he did; but, we like the fact that he got involved. Well, at first, he had to be coaxed into getting involved. But, we academics aren't always the quickest in terms of action.
