Kudos to the Bookseller for this excellent essay. With 2014 just around the corner, here’s the takeaway:

Mayor Jeff Gahan and the New Albany City Council believe one-way streets are not that serious a disease and the we can “live with” a broken and discredited model of street grid.

It’s fine reading as we await the official press release of the Opening Plenary Session of the 2014 Central Committee of the Democratic Party of Floyd County, which of course will be absent a substantive position but replete with flowery ssertions of future abundance.

Whatever. Now, go read Randy’s piece.

One-Way Streets Are a Disease

by NewAlbanyBooks

Think of New Albany as you would a human body. As much as we might like for it to be restored to its prime of life, there are physical aspects of the city we cannot control or change. A city does age.
But like a man or a woman in maturity, New Albany might just want to forestall the aging.
Humans die. Cities, properly managed, do not.
One way streets are an infectious disease being treated as if it were a chronic condition.
One-Way Streets Are Not a Chronic Condition
