Savethechildren, you just made David's point. His point is that we may need to change the rules for hillside vineyard (and other kinds of) development in the future, which obviously includes zoning rules. Do you have any better, ore original thoughts?

If modern small town Americans have a sacred cow like actual cows in India, it is parking. And avoiding Economics 101, in this case the "shortage" of something that is allegedly "free" like "free" (sic) parking. Learn some basic economics, folks.

Thomas Frank has a much more thorough and convincing work on the problems of the liberal elite that controls the Democratic Party these days, in his recent book, "Listen Liberal." And Frank's reasoning doesn't support the prejudices by hack writer Ponnuru of the National Review. Qu…

Bobchonger:
Why should taxpayers subsidize downtown free parking??? [thumbdown] It is NOT a tax, rather a user charge for a service used, and often abused. If there is no price for parking, you still suffer because you have to waste your time and drive around the block. In either case, d…
