An Iconic ‘Super Suburb’ Seeks an Urban Makeover

“To look at Tysons and say that it’s working is like saying General Motors continues to be economically viable because it still sells cars.”

Say what?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I assume the speaker is trying to say, badly, that just because a business is selling products does not mean it is making a profit. A company can be selling product while relying on subsidies, bailouts and special favors to keep itself out of bankruptcy.

    Another example: the post office. Yes, it’s delivering mail. Is it economically viable?

  2. When I moved into the area,Tysons was not quite past the cow pasture stage. It was developed at an astronomical pace. I have not been there in decades, did not seem worth the hassle.

  3. The whole fucking D.C. area needs a major overhaul. Took me forever to get to Tysons, and I couldn’t leave fast enough. Let’s just turn the whole area including D.C. into one big flat highway. That’s my kind of urban redevelopment.
