Big State, Big Problems, No Exit

Best-Laid Plans Weren't Enough in Texas - Yahoo! News:

"Brian Wolshon, a professor of civil engineering at Louisiana State University, said Texas officials 'will probably see there were things they could have done better.'

But he added: 'It's not economically or environmentally feasible to build enough roads to evacuate a city the size of Houston in a short time and with no congestion. It's just not going to happen.'"

Well, no, not if you do it with cars. Too bad we don't have a good rail system or something called mass transit. I seem to remember something like that once existed, but then automobiles and gas stations were invented, and all that other stuff just disappeared.
