We are Headed Toward a Third-World Transportation System


Daily Mail
The people running our transportation system, rather than making it modern and efficient, has been touting changing the name of NOTAM's from "Notice to Airmen" to "Notice to Air Missions." This was being celebrated as a great accomplishment as recently as yesterday. 

I love trains but the people who run Amtrak clearly do not. These extreme delays have become far more routine during the past six months. 

We are appointing people -- and Congress is confirming them -- based purely on political correctness rather than any ability to actually do their jobs. The results are both inevitable and predictable. 

As I have written before, this issue is not confined to government. The people running the networks (all concentrated in Los Angeles and New York) are far more concerned about offending the people with whom they go to lunch than actually producing balanced, accurate news and quality entertainment. I could go on and on, but you get the idea.

Wish I knew how to solve this.
