Did You Know?

While the Chicago region’s population grew by 18 percent since 1980, the traffic increased by 66 percent in the same period.

Thanks Wall Street Journal

Is it really possible that this month I'm thanking both Illinois Dept. of Transportationand The Wall Street Journal

The main article made the point that all transportation projects should be given equal consideration, and that road projects are given unfair advantage by federal regulations.

Hold on a second. Is that possible? The ultra-conservative (some would say libertarian) Journal supports equal treatment for transit projects? 

Well, there you have it. Pigs can fly and the Journal actually does supports public transit.
