Good Letters

I don’t know who came up with the idea; probably some urban hipster. Figure out those goods and services you need to survive, ditch your car, and then see how far you have to walk to arrive at those places that meet your basic needs. Put it all together, divide by the unsquare root of the address of the nearest tattoo parlor, or something like that, and you arrive at something called the Walkability Index.
