"Smart" growth

Not to beat a dead horse, but today's LA Times includes a front-page feature, "Roads at Breaking Point" which begins this way: "California's highways, once the gold standard of the interstate system, are today some of the busiest, most dilapidated and under-financed roads in the country ..."

Nowhere does the article mention that the 30-year old crackpot idea (cheered by the Times at every turn) of diverting funds from roads to transit explains the mess.
