Earth to Delaware: What's to study? The reason is this: More and more and more Americans cannot go anywhere unless they are driving their personal motor vehicle. This is especially true for those Americans who live in places like the sprawl developments between Dover and Smyrna in Delaware. I know, I tried walking along one of those asphalt ribbons one year as an alternative to driving out to Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge.
Even here in the "green" state of Vermont, the car rules the countryside; oops, I mean the paved-over landscape.
