Suburbs are a bad idea? OMG WHO KNEW.

Department of the Obvious concludes that suburbs are unsustainable, 60 years too late.

Pet rant of mine. :D So far I've refrained from bending that article, word for word, in neon tubing and putting it up on the edge of town for the benefit of everyone who discouraged me from moving to a mixed-use, walkable city because OMG crime (read: brown people) and OMG the schools (read: also brown people). [yeah, yeah, I know that's not everybody's reason...but god damn do I hear those an awful lot.]

Thanks to slit for the heads up on the article.
