I have just returned from three weeks in the Middle East (Egypt and Israel). Not one problem — no gun shots nor riots. Peaceful and quiet; unlike the banter over the Trinity Drive reconstruct I left in Los Alamos!
The Egyptians were especially happy to see us and treated us like kings and queens — well, at least like the elite. Loved the way they turn three-lane highways into seven lane ones with cars going every which way when the traffic load gets heavy. Looked like they were braiding hair. Made me think of a congested two-lane Trinity Drive.
Since I was gone, I did not attend the April 7 meeting on the Trinity Drive reconstruct. Here are a few comments I would have made.
First a comment about the Transportation Board: it is assumed that when they joined the board they actually had the credentials that are necessary to evaluate things that would come before them in an analytical manner; not just to provide rhetoric and to see that their self-supported ideas got passage.
When the members of the Transportation Board “blessed” the roundabout approaches, they declared that they had those credentials and had at least verified validity of the basic premises placed before them. In other words, they declared themselves authoritative.
