Re: “Fixing Atlanta's broken infrastructure will require patience — oh, and $922 million

While we're waiting on the infrastructure fairy to leave a billion dollars under our pillow, take a look on the bright side. There are advantages to letting roads crumble to dust while we delay infrastructure repair.

- Re-paving roads is yet another aspect of our dependency on crude oil (for the production of asphalt). Crumbling roads = lower oil imports. Yay!

- Asphalt creates impervious surfaces that pollute rainwater and disturb the natural flow of water to basins. No asphalt, no problem.

- Crumbling roads = slower drivers and greater safety for pedestrians. Traffic calming!

- Think of all the media attention Atlanta would get if we had a bridge-collapse tragedy. TV news eats that stuff up! A crappy Pirate Museum would hardly get us this much media coverage.
