As a Magic Town, we must start thinking out of the box now, to reduce the current overload of people-discomfort, traffic-discomfort, and the growing developmental expansion oppressing Lakeside.
Okay, I’m now leaping out of the box—with an overhead flip. The following are “long-term” transformatory ideas. I’m not really a long-term transformatory ideas type. (I still like the watch-pocket in my jeans.) But somebody needs to try this.
The first and most fundamental issue to consider at today’s Lakeside is the traffic overload.

When Ajijic was a quaint fishing village, this would have been a brilliant idea to keep the donkey carts moving along smoothly. Each day these days, we are dealing with a D-Day Invasion of vehicular aggression.
