End of the Road for the Cul-de-Sac

My friend Alex Hallatt, genius cartoonist of Arctic Circle ,
sent me this link describing how bad cul-de-sacs are for the environment and for the mental and physical health of those who live on them . Uh-oh. Expect the strip to take a sudden bleak turn.

"Isolated and insular, they become cesspools of self-absorption and pettiness that turn their backs on the wider world."

Oh come now, that's a bit harsh...

It was only a matter of time
before the world turned its back
on the lowly cul de sac.

"Isolated and insular, they become inkwells of self-absorption and pettiness that turn their rapidiographs on the wider world."
