  1. I think the correct term for a decree from an organization like the Manhattan Institute is “fatwa.”

  2. Reason isn’t “trapped”. It has been a libertarian organ for at least 4 decades. Expecting them to advocate spending for ANYTHING that benfits citizens is “magical thinking”.

  3. Jarrett Walker’s Human Transit blog ran a lovely set of pix showing 60 people in individual cars, on bikes, and in a bus. Using the bus wasted far less land than the cars. Open green space is much more pleasant than clogged highways.
