Build neighborhoods so a person does not have to travel to get the things they need. Stop putting retail in a clump or schools that need busing. The problem is city planning which is done for profit rather than quality of life.

In 1960 there were 8 grocery stores on Green St between Day Brite Dr and Barnes St. The inventories were small with very limited selections. They were similar to the Quick-Marts of today. It's unlikely that we will see a return to having a store like that on every block. You might complain a lot if you had to walk to such a store and get dinner from what they offered, Trains(?).

You did not have an obese population then and you still have scarcity today. Everyone will never have all their wants and desires, bigger is not better.
You had 8 owners making fair living rather than 8 people getting public assistance.

I've noticed a dramatic increase in traffic, throughout Mississippi (& Baton Rouge) since hurricane Katrina. I'm wondering how many people didn't go back to NOLA.
