I’ve been reading complaints about so much money going into brownfield redevelopment, into revitalizing the downtown, when it can barely afford to support its infrastructure. Well. Most of our tax dollars go right back to the inefficient infrastructure of sprawling communities, which are heavily, heavily subsidized. So go for a drive and think about that one.
