Two beautiful posts from 1000 Friends of Oregon

The group that the Sprawl Lobby likes to call "1000 Fiends" has two fantastic pieces on their website -- one about the bogus growth projections that are being used to sell a gigantic "Bridgeasaurus Boondogglus" for Salem (top), and then another great piece on the underlying issue, how sprawl costs everybody money and demands a constant feeding of new money, depriving us in every other area of life (bottom).

Take a gander at these great pieces, and then think about joining Friends of Marion County (see below -- FOMC is not very websavvy -- could you help with that?) and making gifts to support 1000 Friends.

Remember, all that is needed for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing.  Don't sit idly by and let the Sprawl Lobby rob you and your family of hundreds of millions that you'd rather spend on yourself or on providing a better community.
