Good grief are we back to this again?

When he was a state representative, Mark Olson touted this in his lit/appearances as a way of trying to show he wanted to improve transit in the state other than going with what worked--buses, light rail, commuter rail, etc. His opponents used to ask him when it would possibly be ready and he could offer no response because it was so far-fetched that nobody could even put a price tag on it, let alone a completion date.

I may recall this wrong, but doesn't the University of Minnesota own some patents on variants of PRT?

You know, it just occurred to me that the same people who push the pods (but *not* because the pods would allow the white-flighters to avoid having to sit or stand next to Those People on a crowded bus! Oh no, racism has *nothing* to do with it!) are often among those who bemoan the loss of community as people turn inward and don't seek out face-to-face contact with others. Maybe they might help restore that sense of community if they actually tried a) riding the bus or light rail and b) striking up a conversation or two with their seatmates.
