Miles of Misery - The Post develops the argument that more money for more roads won't necessarily fix northern Virginia's traffic congestion. This gibes with what some proponents of mass transit and smart growth have been saying: vote down the new road tax and let the situation get so bad that people start considering real solutions, like high density and public transport. Music to the ears of my friend Adam, a card-carrying member of the Sierra Club. No wonder there's a bizarre coalition of left-wing conservationists and right-wing anti-tax conservatives siding with the "No" vote. Still, it's too early to call this one.
