      Brainstorming with some fellow community-minded types about TEA-21
      reauthorization, we came up with the brilliant notion that a perfect way
      to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956
      that created the Interstate system would be to pass the

      -------------------------------

      INTERSTATE REMOVAL ACT OF 2006!

      -------------------------------

      Such a bill would provide funds for communities that want to remove
      portions of the Interstate system that were put where they shouldn't be and
      aren't really needed -- to reconnect severed communities, to reclaim
      waterfronts, and generally to make our cities BETTER PLACES.

      Not one of us brainstormers is actually prepared to make this our life's
      work for the next few years, so on the off chance that we can spread the
      "meme" and find a susceptible host, I promised to broadcast the word.
      By all means, if this moves you, run with it!

      In harmony,

      -Ellen Vanderslice
