Transportation History

There were several "Letters to the Editors" this week in regards to the recent transportation bill and its allocation of $2.75 million to the National Packard Museum and $400 thousand to the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse, New York. Many writers felt the funding was pure Pork.

Bill Nichols of USA Today takes a slightly indepth look at the other perspective, that of History being an important part of transportation.

Considering some of the other "pork" included in the bill, maritime history preservation seems like a worthy addition to me, but others certainly may differ.
