Jason Allen, maybe I was a bit harsh but really a little less sensationalism might help you make your point, which in principal I do agree with. Things will need to change but the "teardown the suburbs" rhetoric is a little over the top don't you think? Our society will not be able to support a wholesale shift from suburban to urban living. I hear you, we need to start now and take action but there are a multitude of solutions to consider besides just eliminating suburbs.

As for my "bias" statement, yes I understand this is an opinion piece; but the intent of any opinion piece is to attempt to change other opinions is it not? What I'm suggesting is that perhaps starting from a biased opinion rooted in the extreme position (i.e., teardown the burbs) is not the way to get people to see things your way. Polar extreme opinions tend to be entrenched opinions with very little ability to find common ground.

Getting people to move miles starts with inches.
