    ... I think is that the idealism of the 50s and 60s car culture laid the ground work for the culture we experience now (which many, even SUV drivers, agree sucks). It's more pervasive now, but back then we had a time where big business could collude to destroy the commuter rail system with hardly a whimper. I know Standard Oil, Firestone and GM were convicted of a conspiracy to do so, but what did they really pay? They're all still in business in some form or another while most of our cities have completely inadequate public transportation. They won, the bastards.
