Former Transportation Secretary Noman Mineta has an op-ed in the Post today, in which he tries to remind us that at one point, he was doing important things:

Norm has never taken a cab in Rome.
Does this not seem a bit out of proportion? Local villagers face chaos in the streets, and rather than turn to local government, or having local government seek out the answers on their own, they turn to Norm Mineta who then takes a solemn oath that no one will ever again get cut off in a complicated intersection?
Don't we still face a problem with countries that think it's okay to force abortions, to develop nuclear weapons, or, uhm, to chop women's heads off for showing their faces?
