I was extermely disappointed in the choice of Planetizen to highlight the screaming,self-pitying rants of the editors of The Stranger in their "It's the Cities,Stupid" article. The article spews invective after invective that those from the red states (excluding those in the major cities) are racist, homophobic, rubes,fools, hatemongers (what is the article if nothing but hatemongering?), and everything else their limited imaginations can bring forth to put down. All this from the "most compassionate among us". I do realize the prevalence of liberal thought amongst the planning profession, but are divisive attacks against conservative, red-staters (like myself), the way to build a consensus for thoughtful, comprehensive communities? If not, why did Planetizen feel compelled to present this piece of crap?
