Sprawl, sprawl and more sprawl

Hi all. Just back home from two weeks in Idaho and a week in Colorado. My old hometown of Boise is now a sprawl monster, but it’s a distant also-ran when it comes to Colorado Springs and the Denver metroplex in Colorado. The loss to sprawl of wildlife habitat there is astounding, but shows no signs of letting up. The growth machine is in ovrdrive and the number of motor vehicles plying Colorado Springs-area highways is proof of the unsustainability of the “growth” monster. The proof? Each car, probably 99 out of every 100 autos, has only one person in it.
