If anyone in the Obama Administration sees this, they'll be allocating stimulus dollars for it next week.
"How can we compete in a global economy when the Chinese have high speed rail and down in Buenos Aires they've got roller-coaster commuting? I'm going to propose a bold new initiative in which our cities are built around amusement parks and nobody is more than a five minute walk from a euthanasia clinic."
Funny thing, but I used to take a roller coaster to my first job. Although it wasn't so much a roller coaster as city bus. And it didn't actually take me to work. But it was pretty much the same thing; minus the excitement, soft drinks, and bermuda shorts. Good times.
