The once and future New Urbanist

The Guardian: "The Prince of Wales has resumed his diatribe against postwar architecture by condemning cheap and 'ideological' urban redevelopment and reiterating his desire to see new 'human-scale' homes."

OpinionJournal's Best of the Web wisecracks, "You mean like Buckingham Palace?"

Huh! Don't they know the Prince's official residence is Clarence House? And the new-urbanist village of Poundbury that he oversaw looks pretty nice.
