Quote of the Day

Decades of preaching, writing and exhorting by experts have gone into convincing us and our legislators that mush like this must be good for us, as long as it comes bedded with grass.

–Jane Jacobs on the evitability suburban life and urban decay, The Death and Life of Great American Cities
