Cyber-Community Broadside Number One

10K persons diverse in every way living 
in an area made car free
Sharing a common structure for eco-sustainability
beyond the reach of any individual to afford

Having within walking distance education
health recreation dwellings commercial ventures
squares small play grounds 
A public space
as attracting to people as private spaces

What is a cyber-enabled car-free community?



10K persons diverse in every way living 
in an area made car free
Sharing a common structure for eco-sustainability
beyond the reach of any individual to afford

Having within walking distance education
health recreation dwellings commercial ventures
squares small play grounds 
A public space
as attracting to people as private spaces

Dwellings and all other structures
made of modular mass-produced elements
including smart walls and other surfaces
built-in structures for furniture and work sspaces 
in a safe and cord-free 
environment
In a cyber-community most present 
education and commerce runs out of
kiosk-like small facilities 
that are open much of the time
Education would be at once freer
and more interactive
Everything would be

Current institutions would adapt to the new form
but have functions similar to existing functions
People would live and work in the cyber-community
Most elements of the global culture would be 
available to all in an adaptation of today's 
sports bars

Cyber-communities can spring up
anywhere and become safe  face to face
environments for persons who live by
the shared values of democracy
helpfulness tolerance and non-idolatry

A  cyber-community is not a utopia
It is a grass-roots democracy that
runs as most town governments do

Moving beyond oil, detached sprawl
housing and cars is inevitable because
it creates a system that cannot be 
afforded in the future 
while doing nothing to make society 
more fulfilling

Great Yankee Game Still On (Now Over, Not So Great)

Robertson just pulled a Houdini with two men on none out
Three hot strikeouts
Joe G. called for a walk in the first to end up with a Rays grand slam
CC settled down reassuringly
And the game is still on at 6:33PM ET.
If you have YES you are in luck.
Oh Yanks lead 6-5
Bite your naile
UPDATE TIME
Mariano on bottom of the 9th
No outs one man on
DOOM
RBI triple game tied
Intentional walk
Intentional walk
No outs bases loaded
Five infielders
3-1, 3-2
Strikes out one down
DOOM
Yanks record is 0=1

Neither Party Understands the Economy

The economy will not recover 
Because the car industry was saved
The economy will not recover
Because there is an uptick in housing purchases or construction
The economy will not recover because either party
now has the policies to lead it toward new prosperity
Stasis and sclerosis will endure while both parties
compound delay by arguing for mutually wrong premises
You ask what is the right course
Simply this
Concede that the triumvirate of sprawl
oil dominance and the related businesses 
is anemic and a recipe for a century of
sclerosis war and untold poverty
Concede that a properly densified society
with communities of around 10K
Zoned for everything needed  to live
Car free 
Built on modular principles 
with a shared-ecostructure
Is the right track
Concede that the correct approach is outlined here
under the label cyber-community
The future must be sprawl free
Car free
Face to face community
Enabled by cyber-means
That nobody who should have seen this saw it
is cause for some skepticism that this simple answer
will be known in time to make a difference

Romney's biggest obstacle is Willard Mitt Romney - Broadside

What's all this money going to do
They'll sink themselves before they're through
A weird  pathology lives in an empty suit
About to waste tons of ill-gotten loot







Is your favorite corporation killing democracy? - Broadside




Update from en email: Just last night, Kraft Foods announced it will be joining Coca Cola and Pepsi and will be LEAVING the right-wing American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

How About I Rewrite this NYT First Paragraph?

Republican Committee Fund-Raising Has Big Turnaround - NYTimes.com: "Once teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and irrelevance, the Republican National Committee has raised more than $110 million over the past 15 months and retired more than half its debt, accumulating large cash reserves that could give Mitt Romney a critical boost later this spring as he intensifies his campaign against President Obama."

'via Blog this'

The paragraph above assumes, I suspect in a careless, knee-jerk way, that the RNC was irrelevant and now is what - relevant? How can you accumulate large cash reserves when you still owe half your debt? Below is my more accurate declension of the reality.
The Republican National Committee has followed the course of its presumptive nominee and veered enough to the right to open the pockets of  donors who are salivating at the prospect of ridding the nation of President Obama. The RNC has as a result come halfway back from bankruptcy.
