Brainpickings weekly email and this week was no different, mainly due to the post about the book Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time by Jeff Speck.
I won't requote from the post, as it's well worth just checking it out for yourself.... However, I will mention a small quote from the 2012 Wired conference, where Alissa Walker put up a slide that made me laugh out loud:
"Let's have a moment of silence for all those who are stuck in traffic on the way to the gym to ride stationary bikes."
As they say in America, "Now that's funny...."
I will be adding this book to my wishlist, Christmas is coming up......
