The Vermontization of America

The Vermontization of American by Shawn Macomber (also check out his blog return of the primitive) was published by in March but it is timeless with insights like this:

Last week Earl Blumenauer, a Democratic Congressman from Oregon, was railing about the "body blow" that minor budget cuts in the Republican budget resolution would deal to the nation with "devastating impact." This week he's making the media rounds in near ecstasy about the $875 million being thrown at bicycle and pedestrian programs in the apparently misnamed "Highway Bill," gushing that "this is probably going to be probably the best bicycle bill in history."
