The new cartography

In the lead paragraph, Buda is described as being a “tiny town, halfway between Austin and San Antonio.” Were that so, travel between Austin and San Antonio would take much less time than it does! The article (by Kate Murphy) is on page C8 in the business section of today’s New York Times and is entitled “Sporting Goods and Its Own Business Model: Cabela’s Serves as a Retail Magnet for Small Towns (Tax Incentives Required).” The dateline is Buda. Here, rounded up in one place, is a summary of the process that brought Cabela’s to this part of the world, including highway work, infrastructure improvements generally, and assistance in several forms from various governmental entities.
