Fools, it’s April

“Recognizing the tremendous cost of the auto-dependent lifestyle, the author Philip Langdon has proposed a new national holiday, “Automobile Independence Day.” It would take place on that date each year by which we have earned one quarter of our salaries, the amount that it takes to support our cars. How appropriate that it is April Fool’s Day.”

–Andres Duany, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, and Jeff Speck, in Suburban Nation, New York 2001
