The Little Streetcar That Couldn’t

Not toy trainThere’s good news for Washington, DC area parents with small children. No longer will you have to travel hundreds of miles to Disneyland to let the little ones enjoy a thrilling ride on a toy train. Instead you can pack the wee folk off to DC and let them ride a streetcar line that’s as short as their attention span.

I know you’re thinking, “Ha, ha he’s talking about that little train that runs beneath Capitol Hill between House and Senate offices! But you can’t ride that unless you’re toting a Member of Congress’ sedan chair.”

Actually, that’s no problemo if you’re a campaign contributor. A large enough check and you’ll be like Trump — when he rides Donald gets to wear the engineer’s hat and blow the horn. But I’m talking about the new DC mini–mass transit system that connects a riverbank with Amtrak.

It’s another example of the elitist left’s fascination with boutique transportation “solutions.” You can find the rest of the details by clicking on the link below for my Newsmax column:
