The Road To Nowhere Is Paved With Potholes

Via The Roundup:

Sen. Tom Torlakson wants the governor to call a special session of the Legislature focused on rebuilding California's infrastructure. "Our leaders have said infrastructure is one of their top priorities," the Democrat from Antioch told the Times editorial board Tuesday morning. "Once the special election on Nov. 8 is over, we need to move forward and begin to restore the public's confidence in its government."

And what better way to do that than by telling the public you've got a bridge to sell them...
I seem to recall learning once that one of the first things to fall in Rome was the quality of their roads. I've always like Senator Torlakson - cool name and cooler commitment to physical fitness - and anyone fighting for infrastructure gets my vote. I don't think much will come of it. But lord and my car's suspension know we need it.

Torlakson is definitely a good guy. He has a deep desire to help others and isn't afraid to be honest about the steps necessary to do it.

His committment to transportation issues is definitely important, since it tends to be less ideological as other contentious issues.

He is going to be around for quite some time.
