This self loathing baby boomer claims that "suburbs" are killing us and a awful problem. He claims he can makes us healther, economically more prosperous, solve global warming and more with "Smart Growth Cities." God save us from the do-gooder, know it alls who want to "improve" our lives by taking our property rights, local democracy and economic liberty.
