The Suburbs Forever

Joel Kotkin, prolific demographer, writes for Forbes that U.S. Census data shows the suburbs remain Americans' favorite place to live, including among young Millennials. Urban planners and policy wonks are really bummed by this truth.

Those so-called experts want everybody to live in city apartments a la New York City. Meh, how dreary is that? Public transportation isn't at the top of many wish lists.

Guess what we really desire ... a suburban ranch and two cars, minimum. Except some of us prefer even more rural digs, and pickup trucks.
