Jason Roberts on Jason Roberts

From time to time (to time to time) we write about Jason Roberts, who's become synonymous in recent months with efforts to rejuvenate North Oak Cliff -- without City Hall's assistance (or, occasionally, OK). Hence this just-posted You+Dallas piece, from TEDxSMU, about the self-described community activist, in which he explains hisself.
