The six-figure bus shelter

You can buy a bus shelter like this one in Grants Pass, Oregon, for $20,000, which seems like a lot--but wait until the the local, state, and federal governments get through with it. It seems that when all regulations are met, each shelter will actually cost $106,000, which as one councilman pointed out is the cost of a basic three-bedroom house in this part of the world. "What we should do is build a house at each station, and if you miss your last bus, you can stay there overnight." Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
