Mac Misses the Mark

McIlheran, fresh from toll-evasions in Illinois, proposes to back Soucie in the "one-fast-lane-costs-money" camp.

Wigderson points out one flaw: yes, indeed, we DID pay for the roadbuilding and maintenance--but the money's been stolen.

Beyond that, it seems to me that at least in Wisconsin, the highways have always been, in effect, "public goods." Not semi-public goods...

If Soucie wants to do so, let him find the capital, purchase the land (etc.,) and build his own private toll-highway.
