I can’t stand the Reason Foundation’s simplistic and ideologically loaded snark when talking about smart growth, but at least they framed the issue better by asking “Is Smart Growth Good, Great or Terrific?” The Times on the other hand perpetuates the tired tradition of using “New York” and “smart growth” as interchangeable terms by asking “Should Los Angeles New Yorkify?” This tradition does a great disservice to the promotion of understanding about what smart growth is, and what its positive applications are to the unique circumstances of the city/region in question. But I’m just nitpicking =)
Glad to see some guy doesn’t have his head burried in the sand of debt means can’t do anything!
“I still don't understand how traffic engineers are so concerned about "liability, liability, liability" for any remotely nonstandard design, and then actual, real life death traps are allowed to persist with no accountability whatsoever.”
