My friend Sally sent me an email with a link to PR for a PBS special titled â€œBeyond the Motor Cityâ€œ. She included the message:
â€œMore cool stuff happening in Deeeetroitâ€“ our biggest and soon to be best city .â€ Enthusiasm is so undervalued!
The film debuts nationally on PBS on February 8 at 10 pm but there is a 2 minute preview at the Blue Print for America. The film layouts the potential repeat of history where Detroit was once the envy of cities for its extensive streetcar system. Did not know that.
While Michigan dreams, those in Washington are taking their time debating the advantage of spending on public transportation, despite data that finds that recent stimulus spending on public transport was more effective than money spent on highways (Smart Growth America).
Maybe they just need a little nudge, contact your senators today. They are currently debating a jobs bill and need reminding that Public Transport = Jobs
