More Perfect, except for...

MorePerfect.org (as in "a more perfect union") is a new, Wiki-based venue for getting people involved in thinking and writing about civic affairs, whether in their community, city, region, state, or at the national level.

A new article has popped up on MP. It's titled "Personal Rapid Transit," but the sub header is "Personal Rapid Transit is still a techno dream." Now who do you suppose wrote that? And not for the first time.

Now why would he do that, take the provocative step of going to a new citizenship-promoting website and post his retread propaganda? Do you suppose it might have anything to do with the fact that some of the people who have posted on MorePerfect happen to also be supporters of PRT? And what have they been writing about, if not PRT? The U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Hold on a sec! The Bill of Rights, specifically the First Amendment, is what allows the free discussion of PRT in the first place! Guess that means the Bill of Rights is part of the Minnesota anti-PRT activist's shadowy anti-transit cabal: the auto industry, the highway lobby, Sen. Michele Bachmann (R-Stillwater, MN)--and the Bill of Rights.

I can't wait to read Avidor's new blog, "Dump The Bill of Rights".

MP has seen fit to delete Ken's offending "article."
