As a friend of mine liked to say:

"Too bad; so sad!"

Unless we first create and enact a comprehensive national transportation policy, I do NOT support spending ONE DIME of pubic money on infrastructure, apart from basic, safety related maintenance.

It is FAR too late to begin worrying about our future, unless that concern is accompanied by realistic, immediate ACTION!

Otherwise, I couldn't care less about our blessed economy. As Ricky Ricardo once opined, "You have fixed the sheets and blankets, now go take a nap!"
