Why should city-dwellers subsidize your chosen lifestyle. You don't want concrete and police sirens? Well, you don't get fast Internet, either.
For the same reason the rural dwellers subsidize your life style. You wouldn't have much in the way of transit if the rest of us were not paying towards it. Also it is not always a choice. People have to live where they can find work. Well unless you want an oil refinery, sewage treatment plant, or power plant in the heart of your urban "lifestyle"?

FREE! MAC OS! SQUEEE! Please tell me where I can get my free MAC OS!
