Third Ways on Transportation

An interesting item in the NV Daily on the possible emergence of a "third way" in transportation funding:

Senators have been hinting to that effect for some time, and Sen. Russ Potts, R-Winchester, said Thursday he expects to see one in the not too distant future.

"You're going to see new budget plans coming from the Governor and the Senate," Potts said, noting that it might look like a "conglomeration of the governor's plan" and the Senate's second draft.

In other words, re-arrange the deck chairs and full speed ahead.

Now anything coming from Potts must be taken with a grain of salt. The man is as popular among even his colleagues as a colic is in a nursery. But if another plan along the lines Pottsie describes is put forward, it will add some drama...but little substance.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
