Planner Throwdown:Taking on Joel Kotkin

The Congress for New Urbanism is mad as hell, and they're not going to take it anymore. They're fed up with Joel Kotkin, one-man cheerleader for the suburbs and prolific urban theory pundit, pooh-poohing New Urbanism, smart growth, and cities. So they're taking up the Anti-Kotkin cause and have published a point-by-point counterargument to every misguided, misinformed and misleading "fact" Kotkin has ever uttered or scribbled from his addled suburb-loving brain. We're exhausted just looking at it.
