Let's make monorails the new third rail
This holiday weekend, as America celebrated a tradition of bright shining promise, the future as we remember it took a terrible blow. There was a tragic crash in Orlando, and we lost one of the brave, the few, the monorail pilots. These 'rail jockeys are today's pioneers -- the Lewis and Clark, the Grissom and Glenn, of our generation. And though the fossilized forces of reaction may raise a croaking chorus of fear, we must not allow this singular tragedy to divert us from our course. Let's take steps now to ensure that the monorail always remains the transportation of tomorrow.
