Every year we get a lot of coverage from our announcement of America's 11 Most Endangered Places. You might have read about it in an earlier blog post or on our Preservation in the News roundup. It is not often, however, that we get the kind of coverage that shows such a deep understanding of the larger purpose of the list, which, in addition to galvanizing support for specific landmarks across the nation, raises awareness about the array of issues that the preservation movement is working hard to address on an on-going basis. Philip Kennicott's article in Sunday 's Washington Post does just that, all the while relating the issues presented by this year's list to local DC sites that have been in the news recently. In case you missed it, you can check it out here.
