Ya seen one town in America,
ya seen 'em all. But that's because they're all mandated to look that

the United States.
At one time, zoning was a rational response to unpleasant conditions of
the newly emerging industrial city. But the fanatical level to which
zoning became worshiped by public officials has reduced urban planning
from an art form to the mere administration of curb cuts, signage and
statistical analysis of traffic flow. With transcript.
