This is a great video comparing governments efforts to pass Civil Rights and Medicare and the current passing of the Healthcare bill. While this video is not about city planning it does affect everyone and brings up the question that we as planners face everyday, are we in charge of fixing problems? Obviously I believe that we are but there is a large segment of people who feel that any government planners are obtrusive. That's why I feel the question of whether government is about fixing problems is a great question to ask.

The Sandpit is a video composed of 35,000 tilt-shift photographs taken in New York City. Director Sam O’Hare said:
"I have always loved time-lapse footage, and films like Koyaanisqatsi especially, which allow you to look at human spaces in different ways, and draw comparisons between patterns at differing scales. I also really liked the tilt-shift look of making large scenes feel small, and wanted to make a film using this technique with New York as its subject. "
Original Music: composed by Human, co-written by Rosi Golan and Alex Wong.
