“‘We could build another Phoenix inside the one we already
have, double the population of the city, and … still have
a population density that is less than it was in 1950,’
[architect Michael Hallmark] says.”

It was a real surprise to read this quote, or even to read thoughtful coverage of urban planning issues at all in the populist paper USA Today this week. High gas prices = densification planing in Phoenix. Everyone moves downtown. Suburbs become cities too. In a generation, our children long to move to the country the way that we longed to leave the suburbs for the cities.
