    In my view vdh has slightly missed the mark. It’s not that we can’t do such things any more, it’s that we won’t do them anymore. There is too much rot in the system. The grifters, the parasites, the Luddites, and the generally ignorant can throw up insurmountable roadblocks.

    I do agree with his conclusion that the decay will continue into the foreseeable future.

    I lived in California, around Los Angeles, from 1996 through 2003, and drove its great interstate and state-highway system: to swim the Pacific off Coronado; to rollerblade the path from Venice to Santa Monica; to breakfast on coffee and scones in Larchmont; and to visit incomparable venues/sites including Sea World and the San Diego Zoo (San Diego), the Aquarium of the Pacific (Long Beach), the Wild Animal Park (Escondido), the Ronald Reagan Library (Simi Valley), Disneyland (Anaheim), Santa Anita Park (Arcadia), Hearst Castle (San Simeon), Dodger Stadium (Elysian Park), Muir Woods (Mill Valley), and many, many more. The system put them all within easy reach. Here’s to California’s interstate and state-highway pioneers; they laid the foundation for an empire. Because first, you need a road.

    In my opinion, we, the Western World are lurching into a new “Dark Age”. However, the journey will be made with great self-esteem, a full measure of political correctness and ample virtue signaling. And everyone gets a trophy.
