All Buildings Must be Segway Compliant!

Fred Barnes writes a typical conservative column decrying non-auto transportation without mentioning how the state subsidizes automobile transportation in a myriad of ways.  Then there’s this at the end:

In his tabletop speech, LaHood said he and his wife take their bikes to the path along the C&O Canal and “ride as far as we possibly can.” That’s nice. But it’s interesting, and perhaps telling, that the canal, as a major mode of transportation, has been obsolete since the 1880s—a lot like bicycling and walking.

Walking is obsolete? And it’s been obsolete from the late 19th century?
