It’s Saturday night and I wanted to jump into the weekend with a cartoon that I noticed on the Building Seattle Green blog. It made me laugh, but unfortunately, the humor belies a sad reality. Consider this: In what way do we encourage greater reliance on oil (through transportation) by land use policies that further growth in the suburbs? In what way do we encourage building in suburbs by having greater access to cheap gas and enormous, cool vehicles? Maybe I’m overthinking this, but these issues are more inter-related that one would otherwise think. Enjoy the weekend! Tom Toles Comic Archive at Washington Post. Too Tired for Irony, April 14, 2006.
