On road building and Ohio

2013-08-19 20:52:51.800906+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Family in Ohio is giving me a front seat view of some of the messed up politics. My sister's book documents a bunch of instances of lying and misbehavior by police officers, confirmation for all of which is available in the public record. My visits there are fantastic reminders of the way that we, collectively, subsidize the living daylights out of semi-rural living, the big box sprawl, and driving everywhere. Anyway, some transportation related snark:

RT Angie Schmitt @schmangee, 2, 3:

"During the two-year period ending in late July, about 33,000 people moved to Ohio, while about 84,500 moved out." http://www.cleveland.com/opini...ying_ohio_risks_a_populatio.html

"The number of Ohioans age 65 and above is nearly 10 percent higher than the national average." http://www.cleveland.com/opini...ying_ohio_risks_a_populatio.html

Don't worry, guys. Once young people hear about Ohio is sinking $3 billion in borrowed funds into highways, they'll come running.
