I Do Not Actually Express These Ideas

But people always seem to hear them anyway. From email:

While I realize you consider yourself oh so superior to everyone else because you live in ‘one of those small number of walkable downtowns’ and you don’t own a car blah, blah, blah,… not everyone wants to live crammed on top of each other in some inner city and having to walk or ride some crowded city bus everywhere. What you consider utopia, I would consider hell. While I realize you are anti-home ownership and anti-car and all that, some of us like to have a little space to call our own and the freedom to move around. Call us selfish if you will, but that’s the way it is and that’s the way it will always be.
