The End of Sprawl

Rallying for stimulus, Obama spoke in Fort Myers today, liveblogged by…the White House.

[Obama] Makes a case for high-speed rail and mass tranit — says the days of sprawl are over. “Everyone recognizes that’s not a good way to design communities.”

I’d like to believe he means to do something about it. I’d also like to see the Amtrak funds cut from the Senate stimulus bill restored in conference to go with the Amtrak funding from last fall.
