Michael Allen is the author of Ecology of Absence, a blog on "historic preservation, community and future making" here in St. Louis. Allen is also one of the RFT's Blogger's Baker's Dozen: a sampler of St. Louis' must-read contributors to the blogosphere.

Allen was kind enough to share his three favorite posts with us below.
