General Motors.....eat your heart out !! We all know that General Motors had a heavy hand in influencing Congress to force the abandonment Washington's once great, well maintained street car sysyem back in the 1960's. Is O. Roy Chalk still alive? He {or his ghost} would love to see this vindication now.

Years ago, when we protested street car abandonments, they called us "trolley jollies" or "trolley nuts". Now we're called "transit experts". Putting street cars back on city streets is the "wave of the future" now. City after city has such plans. And watch the price per barrel of oil skyrocket again. Remember, electricity can be generated by many "clean" domestic methods. Thousands of lives don't have to be lost fighting wars to get electricity to run street cars. And billions of dollars don't have to be wasted fighting wars to get electricity.

And don't forget that electric street cars are clean, quiet and friendly to the environment. And they haul vast numbers of people far more economically than Diesel buses.
