Henry Ford Made America Smaller-- Part 1

From the July 30, 2013, USA Today by Paul Labadie. //// Paul Labadie has given tours as a Model T driver at the Henry Ford Museum for ten years. He'd like folks to know that Ford did not invent the automobile nor did he invent the assembly line (Ransom Olds did). Actually, what Henry Ford can take credit for, really, is the traffic jam. Think about that the next time you're sitting there. //// July 30th marked the 150th anniversary of Ford's birth. "Starting out as a simple farm boy's dream, Ford's Model T would clog our streets, create cities and suburbs, employ thousands and put America on a never-ending road trip." //// More to Come. --RoadDog
