“We cannot be dependent on the car. I’ve repeated this saying many times, but I feel it is very appropriate: The car is like our mother in-law. We have a good relationship with her, but we cannot let her conduct our lives. In other words, if the only woman in your life is your mother in-law, then you have a problem.”
Learning from Lerner is an interesting article about the world-famous “green” city of Curitiba in southern Brazil (I went there!!!!). Not only is it a good read, but it’s a nice, simple introduction to the city, it’s principles, and the visionary mayor who kick started the sustainable city revolution way before anyone even knew what the hell that idea was all about.
