Award for authentic New Urbanism

An Alabama town has just pipped Stepford, Connecticut for a prestigious award as the 'Most Authentic' community in America. Report here.

A triumph of the 'new urbanism' town planning philosophy, the town of Mt Laurel, Alabama "hearkens to an earlier, simpler era that exists purely in the minds of its residents ... [and] takes pride in being one of only three towns in Alabama designed by someone who slept with Hitler."

This is a vast, elaborate joke right? What sane person would want to live somewhere the combines all the most attractive features of 'The Truman Show' and 'Deliverance'?

I suspect there's an 'Onion' element to the story, Craig -- plenty of clues there -- but sadly not to the town itself.
