"Making people think of their children is a good strategy, but as long as THEIR children have opportunities they're ok with not supporting transit. Somehow we must dislodge this mental and moral block." (JMorse, above)

What boggles my mind is that better-off people can't seem to see the immediate and long-term benefits of cultivating independence in their own kids, if it's only their own kids they choose to be concerned about. But I suppose it all hangs together with other ideas they've got about what constitutes a livable, workable city-- and yes, it is a mental and moral block in my opinion as well.
