LETTER: Public transit is a reliable way to get around Columbia
Tuesday, September 29, 2009 | 1:04 p.m. CDT
I guess I have been an environmentalist on and off since my high school days from 1969 to 1972. I helped start and volunteered at our town's first recycling center, participated in the first Earth Day and planted trees on Arbor Day. Our efforts were noble but meant very little. Now my own efforts are small. I gave up driving by choice and laws 10-plus years ago. I walk to work and to downtown and use our dependable transit to get groceries and run errands. As I walk around I see car after car with one person? A transit bus with four or five riders? We as Americans need to be the leaders of the free world by showing other countries how our world environment can be cleaner and earth-friendly. Money is needed for this to be accomplished, and money, like manure, does no good unless it gets spread around!
