Too Modern For Jerusalem

The last time I was in Israel, two years ago this week, the streets of Jerusalem were being ripped up to embed track for the city's new light-rail transportation system. Light-rail, essentially what used to be called trolley cars, is a relatively cheap form of transportation, far easier to implementthan digging subway tunnels. Wiith traffic barred from those streets where they operate, the streamlined above-ground cars are far more efficient than buses that get caught in and cause traffic jams.
