Re "Fix50 shows lack of foresight on mass transit" (Viewpoints, April 22): Bruce Maiman's article should be reprinted on Page A1 in bold print, several times a year. Is there one media member or local leader who has the wherewithal to look at the source of the problem? Perhaps a responsible moratorium on urban sprawl until a meaningful system of public transportation is in place? Instead, we have been treated to a chorus of anticipatory hand-wringing, without leadership or journalistic thoughtfulness. Thank you Mr. Maiman for raising awareness.

Urban sprawl and the lack of meaningful mass transit detracts from our quality of life on so many levels, including air pollution, hours lost to freeway gridlock, auto and personal costs in time and money. Perhaps The Bee can raise awareness and press for more action in this regard.
