"You could drive?" I suggested. Not at $3.50 a gallon for gas.
Okay. You can't fly. You can't drive. So much for the global village, the travel industry and "America on the Go".
"There's still the train," I said, "but don't let Bush know -- or he'll start hijacking Amtrak too." And get Homeland Security to issue terror alerts for Trailways and Greyhound as well.
Why has it suddenly become such a hassle to get from here to there?
And why are Americans putting up with it?
