Sorry Papa.....But I have to agree in this case. the OPPORTUNITY of Personal access to transportation is a beautiful liberty. And I do think Americans need/enjoy the ability to choose to drive their own car. I also think access to public transportation is vital also, where cities in the country are becoming so crowded, and owning a car is becoming so expensive, public transportation moves people who can't afford a car. What is funny to me, are the owners of the Hummer H2 complaining about the price of gas. I just can't sympathize with that millionaire driving the gas guzzling machine :) I should become more compasionate shouldn't I ;)


p.s. It was a beautiful day in Juneau Alaska today....I was able to leave the igloo with my sister Rebekah and neice Julia for a quick trip to the Mendenhal Glacier. We were foraging for food ;)

Except that we would lose millions of jobs during the transition from a
personal vehicle society to a mass transit one.  One thing I've come to
believe is that personal access to transportation is as important to
freedom as is the right to bear arms.

It is much easier to track people on trains and planes than it is
driving their cars across country.
