Mutilated Urbanism

This man has managed to say everything I believe in and have been ranting about to my friends and anyone who else would listen for the past 20 years.

Have you browsed Kunstler's "Eyesore of the month"?

Hey AG, Yes. I have seen his eyesore of the month and even sent him a couple examples. ;-) In reality it could be Eyesore of the Day and we would never run out of fine examples.

Have you read any of his books... 'geography of nowhere' is a must read, and 'The Long Emergency' is very good giving details on why we are hooked on oil and its political ramifications, very good historical account of our oil fixation in America.
