Values of the past well serve the future.

There is an expression that he who doesn't know history is doomed to repeat it. Santayana I think. There is no reason not to learn from history. There is also no reason not to preserve the best parts of our past while forging ahead into the future.

In looking at the Laredo (Texas) Metropolitan Planning Organization's future plans for the next twenty years, I am amazed at those thoroughfare plans they have for their fair burg. It'd be great to see them double, or even triple, their population base in a metro area that is an oasis, particularly to travelers coming in from the eastern reaches to get there.
