Leaving aside (for the moment) Calvin Trillin's Beautiful Spot: The Magazine of Parking, who knew that there really was a magazine called Parking Today? Its editor is John Van Horn, and he is based in San Francisco, where the parking problems are worse than in Manhattan. He is also a dedicated Shoupista, which, from what I gather, is the belief that if cities charged high rates for on-street parking, there would always be spots available. My own religion, of course, is Alternate Side Parking, which embraces all faiths and observes the holidays of all nations.
