The FBI arrested a Colorado teenager on suspicion of attempting to support al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The young woman was busted at the Denver International Airport as she attempted to board a plane for Frankfurt with an onward ticket to Turkey. Germany and Turkey are members of NATO, and allies of the United States. It is not a crime to fly there.

Americans aren’t just voting for legalization at the ballot box but also with their vacation dollars. It will be interesting to see how this aspect plays into the politics in other states.

This football game will bring more attention to the fight against destructive Federal and lower government policies than any event yet. It wasn’t planned. We’ll see soon where the MSM takes this.

There is value to be tapped by enabling infill development. And in order to tap that value, more space efficient modes of transport are required than cars on streets.
Now, consider the zoning that is in place in most suburban areas: single use, single user per lot, mandatory set-asides to decrease density and force up value per house in new developments through artificial scarcity, and as a side-effect spilling over into increase property values in existing residences, and often severe height limits except when loosened by specific (and often expensive to obtain in terms of required political contributions) waivers. All of that, whether imposed by town or city zoning or by property owners association agreements, falls under state regulatory authority.
Now, suppose that the state specifies that for any dedicated common carrier transport corridor above a certain service quality ~ start and and service times, frequency, service waiting times & capacity ~ there are zoning easements around the dedicated stops of that service.
