Don’t Miss Part 1 of Joe’s Interview with Donald Shoup

Over the weekend, Joe Linton provided the perfect long-weekend reading for Livable Streets Junkies, an interview with the parking rock star Donald Shoup. The retiring professor had so much to say at his Streetsblog exit interview, that we're splitting the piece into two parts. Part II will run on Thursday or Friday of this week.

Past experience has taught us that Saturday stories, even when we're covering the Mayor of Los Angeles being forced off his bicycle, can sometimes get lost in the shuffle of a new work week. So if you missed Joe's story, scroll down and take a couple of minutes. Or, click here.

If you're just joining us, Shoup has a legion of followers who proudly call themselves Shoupistas. Shoup is retiring from UCLA this year. The college is sending him off with a fundraiser retirement dinner atop parking structure number 32 on Saturday, May 30. You can attend, and hobnob with Shoup himself, by donating to the Shoup Fellowship fund for future UCLA planning students.
