      Very interesting:

      The City of LA has been wanting to lease off some parking garages
      that offer currently subsidized rates to private operators, in an
      effort to cut costs and plug a budget gap.

      Amusing how the same groups that want costs cut raised a hue and cry
      over the end of tax subsidies for parking for private drivers!

      And when the city responded by stipulating in the contract that
      rates had to be kept low, the private companies backed out--all
      twelve fo them.

      In other words, one more sign that private driving is not only
      environmentally unsustainable--it's also economically unsustainable.

      Makes you wonder why so many conservatives are still gung-ho for
      cars. ("American Conservative" magazine excepted.)
