    Good for Gellar! One of the things I always liked about Buffy the Vampire Slayer was that even in Southern California, the fictional Buffy never got her driver’s license, even though she was 22 when the series ended. She and her family lived in a walkable neighborhood, and although the “adult” characters all had cars, everyone seemed to be able to get wherever they needed to go (including the mall) on foot. Plus, if any motorists tried to harass Buffy, she’d pick up their SUV and throw it in a ditch!

    The Post article about city-owned cars is weird. Seifman seems to take the viewpoint that you can’t want both congestion pricing and reduction in city vehicles and parking permits. This leads to him expecting more disapproval from Walter McCaffrey (who, as far as I know, has done nothing to actually reduce driving by public employees), and being surprised that Paul White (who launched uncivilservants.org) supports a reduction in city vehicles. I can imagine it was a frustrating conversation for Paul.

    I am surprized and disappointed that I didn’t hear about the pedicab rally in time. I would have been there, and maybe brought some people. I hope they publicize any such future efforts more.
