Could the $787 Billion wasted on political patronage and projects of questionable merit have instead been enough to hypothetically buy 1 of these for each of the 128 million commuters in America (price point would have to be around $6,000 per)? If not, even I would go along with putting Unions at the front of the line for free Stimulus Bill "Puffins". Just get these things built, fast! Please! Somebody! Instead of useless make-work jobs, think of the increase in productivity that would result from masses of Puffin-Commuters bypassing traffic!
The "Puffin"! "A plane in every garage".
