Agreed, the more pedestrian-friendly we design our neighborhoods, the more we Dallasites seem to embrace the idea of walking. I don't think anything makes us inherently anti-walking, I think we've just designed to make people think that way for a long time. I see the attitude changing as people experience walkable neighborhoods here.
I agree in fact i love to walk... but I live too far from DE to walk there so I am going to drive... once i get there i am fine with walking a mile if need be... For those businesses to survive they have to be able to draw from more than just the people living near by. I have taken Uber to DE and will in the future but sometimes Uber just is not a logical solution depending on when i am going and what i have to do after.
