Bonus Donohue! He also recommended “Announcing the Launch of “Tijuana Sí!” Our New Column Focusing on Baja California’s Food Scene!“: “The Baja food movement has officially become a craze.”

• Me on “If Walmart Were a City“:
Just how big is Walmart (which was in the news here this week)? The Atlantic Cities highlights a graphic from Mother Jones that looks at the sheer size of the company.
• Reader Sam Ollinger on “The Crisis in American Walking“:
I’m not a linguist but I’m fascinated at how word choices influence us. Tom Vanderbilt wrote a phenomenal book, Traffic, that I heard Rahm Emanuel recommend on a CSPAN talk a few years ago and it was the beginning on how I began to really look at our urban environment. I then began to realize how so much of what we currently experience has been a massive social engineering effort that now is so effective that very few of us realize how pervasive and encompassing the effort has been to date.
