The January 3, 2005, edition of the Bacon's Rebellion e-zine has been published. Click here to read it.

Columns of possible interest to devotees of transportation and land use include:

Roads and Reason
Virginia is evolving toward a market-driven transportation system. Let's pick up the pace. Here's what an economically rational funding system would look like.

by Patrick McSweeney

Babble Postscript
The use of confusing vocabulary in the discussion of human settlement patterns just won't go away. Here's an update of uses and abuses since our last column.
by EM Risse

Putting a Price on Mobility
Congestion tolls on Virginia’s highways would encourage motorists to engage in economic thinking, changing their behavior and reducing the rush hour crunch.
