I have been writing about a proposed new streetcar system in Milwaukee and the history of Chicago's streetcar system in my Cooter's History Thing Blog the last two days.
I think the idea of bringing back mass transportation that doesn't use gas is something whose time has come. Nothing like the sound of that clickety-clack and bell on these old modes of transportation. Especially the classic cable cars in San Francisco. "Rice-A-Roni, (Clang-Clang) a San Francisco treat."
