I post a lot here about my love of cities, and my concomitant distaste for sprawl. For a concise and comprehensive overview of What’s Wrong With Sprawl – covering, in several succinct paragraphs, the economic and policy decisions and ramifications that come from our over-suburbanized nation – give this fantastic post a read. Even the comments are worth checking out!
Another thing I love? Libraries. They are everything that is right in the world, as NPR’s Linda Holmes – pop-culture-obsessive, library-novice – discovers and describes in this post. Makes me want to go to a library RIGHT NOW.
Libraries and cities: two of humanity’s greatest achievements. It’s never wrong to give them their due.
