I've always wanted to use that expression in a headline, because for a while it seemed to be the catch phrase most associated with amateur pharmacist Rush Limbaugh.
Speaking of doctrinaire microcephalics, step into my time machine and journey back to the year 2000. Look! Over there! It's !!! !!!!!! the Minnesota anti-PRT propagandist smearing another member of the PRT - cars - highways - Republican anti-lightrail conspiracy:
We have to assume the Minnesota anti-PRT propagandist thinks American infants should leave the Single Occupancy Stroller at home, and instead walk, ride bikes and take light rail to work.
Say! Maybe right after !!!'s light rail presentation (all those years ago) was allegedly "disrupted" by a PRT supporter, it was also interrupted by a crying baby! I knew there had to be a good reason.
Also today: Look who's been added to the Luv Pod Hagiography-- Minnesota state senate candidate Julie Risser (G-41). Go for it, Ovendoor! Who cares if she's for renewable energy and single-payer universal health, and wants more kids to walk to school? So what if she's against coal gasification? PRT is a way bigger issue! It's the single issue, right?
Humidor has cited disruption of a meeting as a key event in the formation of his anti-PRT views. Over the years, he has reported the incident variously as:
...a deranged man interrupted a workshop my wife and I were giving at Macalester College, shouting that PRT is the "only transportation solution", threw a dozen Taxi 2000 Corporation brochures at us and stormed out. Source (June 2004)These stories are identical -- other than the man is not always deranged, said three different things, and the flying brochures had two different targets.
A PRT fanatic disrupted a workshop my wife and I were conducting years ago throwing Taxi brochures at us and screaming "PRT is the future!". Source (May 2005)
In one memorable encounter, a deranged man interrupted an art workshop my wife and I were giving at Macalester College, shouting that PRT is the "only transportation solution", threw a dozen Taxi 2000 Corporation brochures at us and stormed out. Source (September 2006)
A PRT enthusiast disrupted an art seminar my wife and I were conducting, yelling that public officials conspired to suppress PRT and threw Taxi 2000 brochures on the table. Source (October 2008)
The disrupted meeting is twice described as having been about "art." Only -- why would a PRT supporter come to an art workshop in the first place, PRT literature in hand. And why would transit arise as a topic of contention -- if the workshop was about art, is all I'm saying.
