I have tried to avoid being overly political on this blog. I aim to appeal to people of all political persuasions, because I feel that the issues that I post about do not need to be seen through a partisan lens. However, I must say that the prospects for a sustainable Indianapolis have improved now that we will have a President who is a friend to transit, green power, and cities in general. I am proud of my state and city. I hope this moment is not just an end to an inherent anti-urban bias in our national politics; but that it is also a beginning towards a common realization that we really aren’t all that different from each other.
