Updated Title Wording: Railroad Suburb, not Metro-Suburb

I’ve updated the title of the book. I’ve relaced the ambiguous term, Metro-Suburb with the more historically accurate term Railroad Suburb. I’ve also created a barcode for my ISBN for bookstores that only carry books with barcodes (for trackng sales at the counter). Also, an actual publisher looks to be interested in my history of Bond Hill, so a new version may be out in about a year’s time with some modified content and layout.

Much else to report: I’m nearing the end of my internship at TPL in DC and am looking at the doctoral program in urban studies at the University of Maryland. There are also other job leads I’m pursuing.
