How to implement mass transit

Thanks to Ironman at Political Calculations for tipping me off to his really imaginative solution to our traffic/mass transporation problems.

I'm 100% in favor of it so long as university faculty are exempted for another dozen years or so.

Stuart Taylor, Jr. argues that the Democrats would make a big mistake to turn down Leslie Southwick.

Robert X. Cringely writes that really high-speed Internet is finally coming to the U.S.

Just . . . sweet: "A Field Trip to Remember".

The official Herald newspaper reported that Mugabe told a meeting of local council members that they should put more pressure on government ministers to improve services.

"Where money for projects has not been found, we will print it," Mugabe was quoted as saying.
