Delayed Linkage. Call it Hyperlink Congestion.

This should've made the earlier links, but it didn't.  A longform piece on Atlanta's present population stagnation (sound familiar) and future (sorry, subscription only), but I had to include this bit:
In the past, transit critics — including some Georgia elected officials — warned that inner-city criminals would ride the new rail lines to the ‘burbs, walk miles to subdivisions, and steal TV sets. That’s been replaced by a new bogeyman amplified by a small yet vocal minority: Social engineers masquerading as urban planners are hellbent on converting the idyllic suburban fringe into dense zones the Soviets would envy.
