Mark Dayton Picks Pod Person for Running Mate

State Senator Yvonne Prettner Solon was a co-sponsor of PRT legislation with Michele Bachmann.

Watch Prettner Solon testify about the amazing awesome-ness of pods mid-way in this video clip:

I have a great concern about the PRT project - the word "boondoggle comes to mind.

Margaret Anderson Kelliher was right in 2004 about the pods and six years later, MAK is still right.


No $25 million earmark for PRT pork project in Winona, Minnesota.

The ULTra PRT launch at Heathrow has been delayed at least 3 times. The new launch date of the glorified golf carts of Heathrow is some time next month.

The Swedish/Korean PRT prototype malfunctioned recently in front of the media.

The Masdar PRT (actually computer-guided golf carts that follow magnets imbedded in the roadway) has been scaled way back. This setback got a mention in the NY Times.

The much-hyped PRT project in Daventry ended in fiasco.

The so-called Morgantown PRT (it's a mundane people-mover) was the subject of a student newspaper editorial after a malfunction created a "fireball" and filled a vehicle with smoke. The cost of fixing the Morgantown boondoggle is $93 million.
