Quite ironically, I was listening to yesterday's mentioned Kunstlerkast on my commute to work this morning. It is ironic because the one I was listening to was about parking garages and the influence of the automobile on our lives. In the discussion, James Howard Kunstler said, "You know, one of the upshots in America is that sure, we all have our own cars at our disposal all the time, but because of that, there’s almost no place in America that’s worth being in or going to. That’s one of the unintended consequences of mass automobile use is that you actually destroy the terrain so voraciously that nowhere is worth driving to."
