    Tom, I just finished reading an excellent book on the Interstates. I too had always thought that they were for military purposes, but the book I read pointed out that that was not really the case. On first proposal, no mention was made of the roads having any military strategy, but the measure failed in congress. On the second try, language was inserted in the bill to name it the "defense highway" system, and in the Cold War mentality of the time that did the trick.

    Default Thread title

    Not knowing how, if possible, to move stuff to a new thread, I added: also Greene Line wharf boat to my thread title, as you have posted some great stuff which would get missed under the Mardi Gras title. If Franz could separate these two topics, it would be great.
