Tom Vanderbilt at Slate is doing a series this week at Slate.com on the crisis of walking in America. He ties it to a range of issues in public health. It's also an essential part of providing more efficient (and therefore abundant) transit systems.
The first installment is here, the second here.

And that was one of the more comfortable pedestrian trips that I've attempted in Northern Virginia.

We need a national funding program for sidewalks. It's amazing how hard it is to get a sidewalk installed.
