Raze Parking Lots, Put up a Paradise

Holy crow!

If you were to spot the following headline:
"US cities may have to be bulldozed in order to survive: Dozens of US cities may have entire neighbourhoods bulldozed as part of drastic 'shrink to survive' proposals being considered by the Obama administration to tackle economic decline"'d probably figure the article had appeared in some whacky ultra-right-wing publication, right?


Makes good sense, actually. Take Detroit, which might really do well to be "split into a collection of small urban centres separated from each other by countryside," per this report.
