Stop the presses! The solution to DC's transportation woes has finally been found:
"I am not an engineer, an architect or a transportation expert. But in reading the extensive articles about the extension of the Metro system from West Falls Church to Dulles International Airport, I wonder whether anyone has ever given thought to the monorail...Would not the Washington area benefit from a modern, attractive mass-transit system that would reflect 21st-century thinking?"
Despite the fact that whoever edits the Post's "Letters to the Editor" section was obviously drunk on the job yesterday, this letter raises a good point. For far too long, we have failed to properly implement mid-20th century visions of 21st century thinking. Once we come to our senses and embrace the monorail, reliable and affordable jet packs and hovercars can't be far behind. The future is going to be awesome.
