An Army of One

Originally published at "PRT Is A Joke" IS A JOKE v.1
Words written with wildcards (***, !!!, etc.) was the way we originally wrote
Ken Avidor, Ken, and Avidor.

In his anti-PRT story "Let's Get Real About Personal Rapid Transit" (2003) at the website of Light Rail Now, the indomitable *** attached the following caption to a photo of a PRT vehicle (emphasis):

"SkyWeb Express/Taxi2000 version of PRT would carry passengers in tiny 3-person pods - leading detractors to christen the system "ménage à trois transit"."

Oh really? Let's Google that! How odd: that caption is the only hit. I guess that makes it "detractor," singular.

Erratum: 568 hits.
