Headline: Say Goodbye to the Rust Belt

Ed Morrison's latest piece on economic development has a sub headline that grabbed my attention.  His New Narratives in the Great Lakes|Say Goodbye to the Rust Belt post recites some regional approaches to re-writing the view of a region defined by the pejorative "Rust Belt" term.

His piece is worth a read.  So is his map, similar to the one linked to above.

Ed's map covers nine states and parts of Canada under the heading "The Industrial Heartland of North America."  Don't call it "Rust Belt" though.
