If We All Concentrate Together, We Can Get This Town to Levitate

Are there still people in Pittsburgh who think that Maglev is going to save this city? Wait, don't answer that. Of course there are. If Pittsburgh gets the Maglev demo project, will it really change anything for the region as a whole? No. We'll still have all the same problems, and all the same possibilities. And maybe a few new ones in each group. Of course, a few people will be able to go much, much faster than before, and the rest of us will be moving at the same speed as before.

All together again: Click your heels together three times and say, "There is no magic bullet. There is no magic bullet. There is no magic bullet."

Now back to our irregularly scheduled programming.
