I'm disappointed in Thomas Hylton, who views on sprawl and development I usually respect. There is a difference between using the power of government to eliminate policies that encourage a form of behavior, and using the power of government to prohibit that form of behavior. I don't think government should subsidize, directly or indirectly, suburban sprawl. That doesn't mean I think it should be illegal to build a 5,000 square-foot home. (Then again, I part ways with a lot of anti-sprawl activists when it comes to land-use regulations.)
