 Life itself is diverse. We need more of both, particularly in cities. Tax payers need town council members and legislative committees to broaden and deepen their knowledge of ecology for less costly, more communal, and user-friendlier living spaces. Reading Jane Jacobs would be an excellent start. Two recent occurrences in the town of Bloomfield, CT are one of many mistakes that ought to have been prevented: a massive new apartment building has literally destroyed an old, lovely neighborhood and Niagra Bottling was allowed in town to bottle water from the Metropolitan District Commission supply underwritten by taxpayers, i.e., privatization.    – word pond
