Hey RF! For what it is worth, I commend you and Bill Bishop for having keen insight on sprawl and the current sort dynamic. My concern is that the sort dynamic, or process, is becoming stronger. And while we can see what's going on right before our very eyes, we remain pretty helpless to do anything about it. So I guess I'll take a Jacobsonian stance on this, and say that while it is good that we know what's going on, it is bad that it is still happening. I'm not sure if Jacobs would call this a "vicious spiral" or not, but it comes close to that categorization. That's why I'm ambivalent and critical of articulating the ideology of the sort dynamic. Does talking about it make it worse?

Whitney Gunderson

Well, you know, I was sort of looking for an answer here.
