Maybe instead of people paying for schoolbus service, walkers over a certain distance would get rebates or some non-monetary other type of credit. Naah, that's just complicating a simple issue.

In massive Fairfax Co. schools here, the bus fleet is colossal. I have a good friend who's a driver, and she tells me some appallingly trivial uses for buses, like transporting middle school athletes about 1000 yards to practice on a high school field nearby (or vice versa). Frankly, I don't think athletics merits that level of waste. People need some perspective.

And if people are too lazy or busy to walk what, 5, 10, 15 minutes to school?, then that's out of whack, too.

You've gotten my dander up, and right near bedtime. You bad.
