Urban Planning

George Carlin on American Planning in 2005 : urbanplanning

Listening to an old George Carlin special and he says:

“It’s embarrassing, only this country could have taken this beautiful pristine American landscape and turned this place into what it is today. A Shopping Mall, a big f***ing Shopping Mall. Do you know that? That’s all you’ve got here folks. Mile after mile of the mall. So many malls. Major-Malls AND Mini-Malls! They put the Mini-Malls in between the Major-Malls and in between the Mini-Malls they put the Minimarts, and in between the Minimarts, you got the car lots, gas stations, muffler shops, laundromats, cheap hotels, fast food joints, strip clubs, and dirty book stores. America the beautiful! One big transcontinental commercial cesspool and how do the people feel about all this? How do people feel about living in a coast to the coast shopping mall? Well they think it’s just f***ing dandy! They think it is cool as can be. Because Americans love the mall.”
