Carmageddon, something we can all agree on

Any time I write about mass transit and freeways in Los Angeles I brace myself for the inevitable backlash in the form of displeased emails and phone calls. (No subject is more contentious in Southern California.) Tuesday morning, though, after my Critic’s Notebook on this weekend’s coming Carmageddon appeared in the Calendar section, I am happy to report that the email is running strongly in favor of many of the ideas laid out in the piece.

It’s early, of course. Things could change.

Meanwhile, check out my Reading L.A. post on David Brodsly’s ‘L.A. Freeway,’ a book whose wisdom about mobility in Los Angeles holds up quite well three decades after it was published.
