BF.net LCF forum members in the news

Last week several forum members and I were interviewed for a piece by Associated Press' columnist Peter Svensson. The piece is titled Ditch the car? Don't laugh, it works for some creative commuters. He researched the piece and looked for interviewees right here in the LCF forum.

The story moved on the wire today, (Tue Sep 5) so look for it starting on Wednesday. Your paper may run it on a different day. Svensson's column ordinarily appears in the business/financial section, but the story also moved on the General News wire.

My problem is that my local Daily Fishwrapper doesn't carry his column. I'd be indebted to any forumites that could point me to a link in their local paper's web site, or better yet, would snail mail me the page from their paper. PM me for my address.

Thanks to all!

Ah, Cranky found it already!

Car-Free article in San Francisco Newspaper

No pics in this version though. There are two pics that "shipped" with the piece.

I liked the piece a lot! It's encouraging to see that car-free people are now perceived more as being almost normal...
