It's a series of tubes.

What is up with Republicans and tubes?

First, we hear that commuter rail is dead in Georgia. Rail is no good, we’re told, because you can’t move iron tracks with every shift in traffic patterns. Perhaps this is true, perhaps not.

But now we have this idea of moving metro Atlanta traffic via giant, underground tunnels. Much like we do sewage, which is an interesting metaphor.

Lord knows that tunnels are easier to pick up and move when commuter patterns change. If you think about it, a huge tunnel doesn’t weigh much more than a donut hole.
