A Progressive for All Seasons

A Mule and a PlowUnusual for a denizen of Washington D.C., Sam Smith was born here. Now that he's pulling up stakes for small town life in Maine it'll be interesting to see whether, and how, his perspective on national issues changes. At any rate, thank goodness, he'll keep on producing his marvelous and unique Progressive Review. It's a national treasure, as is he. This one is a bit of a ramble — for which I take full responsibility. Total runtime an hour and twelve minutes. Enjoy!

Excellent. I was happy to hear an echo of something I've harped about for some time — the best solution for transport is to design things such that people don't need it so much.

And while I live in the land of the rising sun, where high speed rail is a perfected art, I have to agree that the first (rail) priority in the USA has to be basic train service. It once was. Can be again. I also was stunned at hearing my own view repeated regarding putting auto manufactures to work building rail cars. Oh yes they can.

My dad was an aeronautical engineer who designed much of the B-24 bomber. During WWII, the auto assembly lines turned out thousands of airplanes. They can do rail cars as well.

Pardon me boy, is that the Chatanooga Choo Choo?
