Covers from the Hall Collection

This cover demonstrates several more reasons not to hate the proposed Cincinnati Streetcar.

Reason #132: Streetcars are sexy.

Reason #133: Streetcars in Cincinnati have an alliterative quality.

Reason #134: Streetcars are macho.

Reason #135: Streetcars make convenient metaphors and similes.

Reason #136: The Streetcar: The Cadillac of Public Transportation

This is, of course, exactly the sort of romanticized codswallop detractors of the plan point to. But isn’t public opinion, that sine qua non to the success of a neighborhood, a people mover, or a conspicuously-consumed electronic device really partly codswallop anyway?
