Reading about urban development reminded me of this:
"You live with the threat, you tell me you live with the threat of my extinction. Leonard, I live with it too. This is my right; it is the right of every human being. I choose not the suffocating anesthetic of the suburbs but the violent jolt of the Capital. That is my choice. The meanest patient, yes, even the very lowest is allowed some say in the matter of her own prescription. Thereby she defines her humanity. I wish, for your sake, Leonard, I could be happy in this quietness. But if it is a choice between Richmond and death, I choose death."
- Said by the character of Virginia Woolf in The Hours. Who was not, as the song goes, a little bit country.

    I can only assume she is talking about Richmond, Virginia. Dang, I was just thinking about moving back there too. I'm going to have to read this book.
