Basu knows best?

RekHA Basu typifies the fiberal attitude.

Do as I say, not as I do. I'll determine what's best for you.

Basu opines...

How high gas prices could improve our lives

At the most basic level, it should give a much-needed boost to public transportation.

With this caveat...

Right now, I'd have to walk more than a mile to get to the nearest bus stop. That's hardly practical, but if they put a bus stop in my neighborhood, I'd be the first one on.

Basu lives, at the most, 1.1 miles from a DART bus stop at 42nd & Ingersoll.

1.1 miles is hardly practical for Basu, because she lives in an over $300,000 South of Grand home.

That is still where a lot of old money, power brokers in Des Moines reside.

It's hardly practical to have them mingle with the great unwashed.

Those people, along with a writer for the state's largest newspaper, could get a bus route if they wanted one and the scientific community is united in that fact.


Basu could also have her youngest son drop her off on his way to Roosevelt High School, it's a straight shot and would give her a quality four minutes each morning.

Wait, maybe he takes a school bus (HA!).

Basu's bloviation continues...

More commuters may be inspired to ride their bikes to work, a great heart-healthy exercise.

So is walking 2.2 miles per day!
