Ray Bradbury to Earth: L.A. Needs Monorails!
Science fiction icon, Ray Bradbury, in a recent editorial for the L.A. Times extols the virtues of a monorail to solve Los Angeles' glutted freeway system, and invokes images of what the city's transportation future holds. "The freeways that were once a fast-moving way to get from one part of the city to another will become part of a slow-moving glacier, edging down the hills to nowhere." He recalls a 1963 Board of Supervisors meeting in which he chastised the Board after it rejected a monorail proposal, and how he was then "conducted out of the meeting." :: L.A.
