Did You Know?

A bicycle commuter who rides four miles to work, five days a week, avoids 2,000 miles of driving and about 2,000 pounds of CO2 emissions each year.

Thanks Wall Street Journal

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

src='s issue of the Journal had a special section about challenges facing the transportation industry. 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.
