A Riot of Rebellious Scribbling

The Nov. 28, 2005 edition of Bacon's Rebellion is now online. Those who follow transportation and land use issues may find these two columns worth reading:

The Foundation of Babble
In the study of human settlement patterns, sloppy language leads to sloppy thought. Take, for instance, the use of the word "sprawl."
by EM Risse

A New Generation of Boondoggles
Has Virginia learned nothing? State authorities have approved three new highway projects that will cost more than $1.8 billion and provide precious little congestion relief in return.
by Trip Pollard

I also recommend Bob Burke's latest reporting, on the topic of public-private partnerships, which I will flog in a follow-up post.

If EMR thinks "Sprawl: A Compact History" is an oxymoronish title then I wonder what he would think of "A Brief History of Time".
