Mass transit hysteria

P. J. O'Rourke, in today's Wall Street Journal, debunks the hysteria behind spending billions of dollars on mass transit systems that only tiny minorities of the people use. The article's available online, but only to subscribers. A copy was posted to the misc.transportation.road newsgroup. Since I couldn't find it via Google Groups (it's probably not going to appear there for a few hours yet), it's reproduced for your reading pleasure Collapse )
