The Wake of Vanport

BUFFALO, N.Y. — President Barack Obama could look up the numbers to learn the story of western New York's economy: the poverty rate, unemployment, median household income. Or he could have seen Jeff and Scott Baker's billboard as his motorcade navigated through Buffalo on Thursday: "Dear Mr. President," the brothers' sign along Interstate 190 says, "I need a freakin job. Period."
