This week, Jeff and Tanya take on the Atlanta
Braves' terrible, no-good, very bad decision to move their stadium
to Cobb County, Georgia. We discuss cities that are (and are not)
shaped like wedding cakes, and whether that means you need to
smoosh your spouse's face in it. Tanya makes a pedestrian-rights
argument against high-heeled shoes (and Jeff abstains from taking
sides). We parse the differences between "shared streets" --
without marked-out space for cars, bikes, and people on foot -- and
vehicular cycling. And we speculate on what DC would look like
without height limits, make fun of neighborhood parking bullies,
pity the mega-commuters, and most importantly, shame the transit
riders who fail to cede their seats to those who need them because
they have their heads stuck in Angry Birds.
