Made in the USA...crapped out on the side of M.L.K.
The Streetcar proponents claim that Streetcars entice a more healthy environment by encouraging walking. They're right. I could have sat my lazy ass on the Streetcar when nobody was saying anything about why it was broke (I had to check my Twitter for updates). Instead, I walked all the way across the Hawthorne Bridge to get my car, drive back to pick up my family, and then continued our journey in air conditioned, spacious comfort.
About a 20 minute walk. Considering we had been on the Streetcar for about 40 minutes taking the long, scenic trip through nowhere to get there... (I could have ridden a bus and shaved half the time walking back, but I didn't want to wait for the bus.)
