Urbification: Taking the sub out of Calif. suburbs

Walking. Bicycling. Alternatives to Driving Everywhere. Social justice. Alternatives to suburban boredom and waste. And the infrastructure and technology needed to get there.

From the New Urbanism list, posted on Feb. 11: Writing about the recent U.K. Guardian essay, "The US economy needs oil like a junkie needs heroin," Daniel Jennings writes: "the so-called peace activists driving to their anti-war demonstrations don't want to hear it." My own Oakland Tribune on Monday morning had a photo of a little girl from Napa marching in San Francisco. I seriously doubt her family took public transit to get to the march. If we oppose a war for oil in Iraq, then many more of us need to start showing our opposition to the U.S. Driving Everywhere culture at the root of it all.
