just a little more about how much federal money we spend on planes, trains, and automobiles.
Month: June 2002
went to boston last weekend, saturday thru monday night. good times, lobster and history and just exploration, and the newbury comics cd store. all much better than the 8 hours on a plane coming back. storm at the destination airport, chicago ohare, and so we waited a long time to take off and in the holding pattern and while diverted in detroit to refuel. i dont like to fly, only really for political reasons. so that whole experience has combined with stuff on maglev trains and watching pbs to find out amtrak will cease operations if they dont get a big loan by july 1st. govt holding them to profitability, while no transportation is truly profitable. public subsidizes roads and air traffic control, not to mention huge bailouts of airlines. a very fullsaturday. house is sold, everything needs to be out by july 14th, includin a very big tv. uic/polisci. woohoo
now pat, i guess i agree. the radicals overlap every once in a while, cause the spectrum is really curved, like a big ole yellow ribbon, kinda. anyway. and i wouldnt mind being a democrat if this guy’sideas had any sway over the party. but tonight im really just wonderin about the executive branch, and the FBI CIA NSA DEA ATF INS mix. i gotta look into it, but shouldnt it all be covered under the department of defense, or else that be renamed? maybe it is. missed the speech, thank golly for the web.
