    we figure out how long the paradigm of the individual driving an automobile will last. oil has peaked, baby, and it's time to give up on suburbia and the car and to quit building expensive infrastructure that won't be useful in the post-car world that's coming.  trains make sense and so do boats and canals.  interstates do not.  might as well let them fall apart.
