    a car dependent society as it leaves a fair chunk of the population without reasonable access to the basics because they cannot afford the extraordinary expense of a car and public transit does not go where it needs to go . .

    •  Perhaps (0+ / 0-)

      But that's beside the point. The situation we have now is the situation we must deal with. The diarist contends that no one living in a city now needs a car. It might well be the case that if we were less dependent on cars, grocery stores would be more decentralized, but that's a different issue.

        But chose not to take them

        The diarist actually indentifies some and I'll simply suggest that any place inconvennient to walk to can be reached by bicycle fairly quickly.

        Do you own a bike?
