Sanitized (of relevancy) for your protection

Apparently, the Minnesota anti-PRT propagandist has never before heard of a private company (of any type) trying to keep protesters (of any type) off of its facilities. No, I guess PRT invented that too.

Using Kenmore's logic, if a company is pro-environment, it ought to allow environmental protesters to gather and possibly disrupt its operations. If not (and especially if it also has a PRT program), then the company must be anti-environment. Who cares if the EU and Swedes see PRT as a tool for urban mobility and reducing oil dependence -- that's an inconvenient truth Mr. L'Avitory flushes down his memory hole.

What we really need to know is what's the Mark "Slappy" Olson connection? Has Olson ever flown into or out of Heathrow? We need the facts!

Also today: Heathrow's new Terminal 5 will be served by surface rail and the London Underground -- obviously, trains must be part of the Airport Expansion Conspiracy too.

Update: the Propagandist singles out PRT as 'greenwashing' (9/4)

Dec. 17 -- BAA's Heathrow Corporate Responsibility Report cites multiple modes and methods in its surface transport strategy:
Paddington-Heathrow local train
Piccadilly express train extension
Heathrow Express extension
Heathrow-Staines "AirTrack" rail link
Public transport interchange
Improved bus and coach service
Employee car trip reduction
Employee public transport commute discount
No change in parking strategy
Limit construction worker car trips

I challenge the Propagandist to be consistent, and denounce all of these as greenwashing!

Ken Avidor is a stalking horse for Garry Trudeau haters
