    The parking story in Governing is sad because it took almost 12 years for this well-regarded journal to come around.

    Why is Governing a well-regarded journal? They’re publishing articles written by Americans For Prosperity, which is a Koch Brothers sock puppet, without the conflict of interest warnings that are a standard of reputable and competent journalism.

    For this article, they’re not really coming around to recognizing that subsidized car storage is a city-scale cancer. Shoup is characterized as an ivory-tower eccentric, and the author does his best to . Human-oriented development is mischaracterized as an impossible social engineering project. Ridership statistics for the Washington Silver Line are taken out of context to “show” that rail expansion is a boondoggle, even though it takes several years for rail ridership to stabilize and infill development to occur, and assumes that the rail expansion is backed by sensible zoning and land use laws.
