Trolleys a first-order folly The Metropolitan Transit Authority's plan of laying "streetcar tracks" down the middle of Main Street is a folly of the first order. Tracks are very expensive and the work on them has to be "in place," which is a problem that is upsetting to all traffic downtown. A design requiring detours would not be in the interest of the designers, political or otherwise. Tracks can also be a driving hazard in rainy weather.

An Open Letter to Alan Greenspan

Copley News Service, 11/29/2000 Dear Alan: A while back I expressed concern that the economy was teetering on the verge of a hard landing rather than the soft landing you envisioned when you announced 18 months ago you were going to slow down the economy in order to fight inflation. You and I have been friends for a long time, and I couldn't imagine that you really believe that too much economic growth and too many people working cause inflation.

Citizens for a Sound Economy Releases Taxpayer Alert on Cost of Palm Beach Recount

Citizens for a Sound Economy today issued a Taxpayer Alert to its more than 180,000 grassroots activists advising that the election vote recount is costing Palm Beach County taxpayers $25,000 a day. According to the Palm Beach County Commissioners' Office, taxpayers are paying the $25,000 tab to cover the vote counters' food and salary, additional security around the vote tallying area, and local cable access to broadcast the count as it happens. In the days since the Nov. 7 vote, Palm Beach County taxpayers have been assessed an estimated $250,000 for the ballot recounts. "The taxpayers of Palm Beach have been put through enough these past few weeks. To now learn the huge costs associated with these long, drawn out recounts make this whole experience that much tougher to deal with," said Florida CSE Director Slade O'Brien. "Americans deserve democracy, but an expensive, confusing battle will only result in a loss for hardworking taxpayers." Ballot recounts are being conducted in three Florida counties.

Letter to the Wall Street Journal

November 20, 2000 To the editor: The government-mandated cable modem “open access” argument relies on technical ignorance and vague notions of inequity. Both were on full display in “Cable Alliances Prompt Some Consumers to Pay Twice for Web Access” [November 20th Marketplace Section]. From the beginning, the story interprets the current marketplace for high-speed Internet access as irrational and dominated by conglomerates uninterested in consumer opinion.
