I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen a wonderful 2-hour show on
PBS about the Amish, in Lancaster County, Pa. I just happened to watch
it the other night, and it really is a terrific socialogical glimpse
of the issues that the Amish currently face in their fight to remain
in Lancaster county. Specifically, the show looks at suburban sprawl,
and how this has made life significantly worse for those who want to
The show also makes a brief reference to the New Urbanism, and
walkable communities, and is both sarcastic and humorous in its
dealings with the subject.
Three cheers to public television for this kind of programming, and I
urge anyone to try to see it!
