Planning for the Past

The Doser senses great differences between what the citizenry needs and what the citizenry wants. It is a time, for example, when enormous sums of money are being poured out to the auto-manufacturers (masters of the "give them what they want" philosophy.) The auto people are stunned by the suggestion that the government wants to talk about what is needed. Even gives some impression that it wants to talk seriously about what is needed. At the same time, the Portland, Oregon, "give them what they want" bunch has approved a twelve-lane freeway bridge across the Columbia! Those auto folk certainly are "birds of a feather," sticking "together." They don't have a clue that they are certainly birds of the dodo ilk. (If the citizenry gets what it needs.)
