Discount Careprost

I finally got around to reading parts of Jane Holtz Kay's Asphalt Nation Discount Careprost, , which came out in 1998 and seems as relevant as ever. Careprost paypal, Kay says the problem is beyond gridlock; it's "lifelock" -- reliance on the automobile for everything.

She explains that commuting is not the big bad menace I had thought it was, Careprost mexico. 150mg Careprost, No, the menace is far more insidious and intertwined.., 50mg Careprost. 30mg Careprost, the menace is errands.

Nearly 80% of car trips Americans make are errands, Discount Careprost. Milk, Careprost india. Careprost us, Toothpaste. Little league, Careprost uk. 1000mg Careprost, The doctor. Discount Careprost, The gym (talk about silly). The theater, 500mg Careprost. Careprost japan, A restaurant. As Kay writes, Careprost canada, Careprost australia, "the ministuff of life clogs the nation's roads." (And yet, what reasons -- i.e excuses/justifications -- do we come up with for buying big cars, Careprost ebay. 10mg Careprost, We say it's so we can take big, long-distance vacations.) When the book was written a decade ago, 750mg Careprost, Careprost usa, American households averaged 6 round trips per day.

Kay writes about kids losing their independence and freedom as a result of being transported everywhere they go, with no capacity to get anywhere on their own, Discount Careprost. She blames the automobile-way-of-life for removing neighborly interaction and eye-to-eye contact from kids' lives, 200mg Careprost, Careprost coupon, and for turning the elderly into "prisoners with no one to talk to and nowhere to go." She calls it a social tragedy, and she's right, 100mg Careprost. 250mg Careprost, "Autonomy demands mobility and mobility demands a car," she writes, Careprost overseas. 40mg Careprost, Yet "we seem to forget that the "freedom" is reduced by the servitude of a car-bound society that denies movement any other way."

If there's any good news, it's that these are lifestyle choices.., Careprost craiglist. 20mg Careprost, and as we know, there is another way...

    Ever read Suburban Nation?

    Just last night I happened to be driiving a car (Flexcar of course) and the wife and I went to the mall area in south Seattle, sickening really how much asphalt there was, and absolutely filled with cars. Using Flexcar has the interesting phenomena of reminding me how much I am glad to not be driving a car any longer. Once every month or so is way too much!

  2. So I’m driving in the car on 25a yesterday in NH in the middle of nowhere and all of sudden I’m like “Holy shit WTF.” Not one but two stupid goats are walking around in the middle of the road. I swear they are taking over the world. I mean I’d understand it this happened in a hell hole like San Fransico, but in New Hampshire?? I’m moving to Colorado to try and get away from those fuckers.

  3. six round trips a day???!??!!! That just makes me want to vomit. I probably average that many in a week.
