News Flash: Transportation Does Not Have To Mean Highways-Only

You've got the Walker way, and just to our south, Chicago's new Mayor is entrusting his city's transportation system's planning and operation in this era of who-knows-how-high-gas-prices go to an expert who is also a biking enthusiast.

Can you imagine Walker bringing in someone described like this:

"The hiring decision signals [Rahm] Emanuel’s commitment to making Chicago a world-class biking city, one of his campaign promises. Emanuel has also made transit the centerpiece of his proposed transportation plan. According to the Washington Post, Klein turned down offers to run state DOTs before accepting Emanuel’s offer."
