KrispyKritter: Paris1127 i saw a TV documentary about some of the many monorails in EU. what a wonderful form of transportation. very clever to place them where they do not impede or interfere with man made structures or cause destruction of natural elements. monorails are one more thing that opens the eyes of an American who has heard "We're #1" chanted many times. maybe every government feeds lies & propaganda to their masses, i don't know.
