Bye-Bye Byrdie

The inestimable Not Buck at Richmond War Room gives us a peek at the House Republican's transportation plans:

The absolute and total end of the Byrd Road legacy
No more secondary streets to be taken into the system past 2006.
Urban Service Districts for streets
Maryland and Tennessee style smart-growth laws.

Impressive. Most impressive. Bringing an end to the Byrd system alone is a major step forward. How will the pro-tax caucus take the news? If
this is any indication, not very well.

Keep all sharp objects away from Scott Leake for the next 72 hours!

"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

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"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
