Mouse Cities

"...Manhattan and a mouse might just be variations on a single structural theme."

"Tree and Leaf," The Economist, February 13, 2010

Of course, we begin with the circulation stuff, like in the Disney movies of the
1950s, if I remember right. Huck Finn on a raft exploring arteries and all that.

"The leaf,then, is a resilient distribution network--one whose principles could be applied to, say, electricity grids."

Looks like the suburbs to me.
