Paul Weyrich Dies

One of the few Republicans we on this blog would have considered acceptable for the position as Secretary of the Department of Transportation has died.

Paul Weyrich was 66 when he passed away. Though Mr. Weyrich was a dyed-in-the-wool conservative – he was one of the founders of the Heritage Foundation – he was also a major supporter of rail transit, especially in pushing for it over BRTs.

We thank him for his continued and sometimes overlooked activism on behalf of public transportation. Rest in peace.
