"A Space Odyssey" cartoon by Brent Brown

Building bigger roads to accommodate increasing populations of drivers in our area have long been delayed. Will the eventual fixes really fix anything, or should real improvement of travel frustration include re-assessing our car culture and seeking alternatives? Due to our entrenched love affair with the freedom of personal transportation; sprawl of residential locations in relation to commercial ones, our mountainous terrain and lack of rapid transit is such smaller, rural areas, will our transportation technology still be the same as it was fifty years ago while our medical and computer technology has soared to new heights?

Cartoon originally published in the Asheville, NC alt weekly paper, “The Mountain Xpress”.
