The anti-planner informs us that our transportation overlords now define “liveability” as making us wait longer in traffic and making it more costly to drive.

How will they manage it? First, they will increase the amount of time people waste in traffic in the hope that a few people will find alternative modes of transportation. Second, they will increase the cost of sitting in traffic in the hope that people will drive less and own fewer cars. Isn’t it wonderful to know that government officials care about us so much that they will waste our time and money not simply out of carelessness but as an intentional policy?

Yep, that’s the American way. I’m out of town and out of free-time for the next week, so posting may be sparse. Please stay tuned.

    As Jimmy Dodd would answer fellow Mouseketeers, “Why? Because we like you!”

    Quick question: name the current Secretary of Transportation. Hint: he’s from Michigan, wielded the gavel when the House impeached Clinton, rode the Acela with Joe Biden to support high-speed rail, and travels in a military G-5.

    On the subject of high-speed rail, they want the train to go 300 miles per hour from LA to Yuma, and then have a break in the tracks, and then go 300 miles per hour to McCarran Airport, have another break in the tracks, and on to the terminal at Lake Meade. Then there’s the Tijuana express from LA….

    Then there’s the Broadway Limited from Las Vegas to Detroit to Toledo to Grand Central Station to Albany, Buffalo, and Rochester.

    See! And you thought I had slashed your tires out of spite.
