Major Infrastructure Upgrade Proposed - National System of Resilient Infrastructure (NSRI)

An interesting read of a proposed national infrastucture upgrade that would leverage the existing interstate highway system.  The idea was developed by Dr. Ted Lewis of the Naval Post Graduate School.   I wonder if this kind of thinking is finding its way to policy levels.   I believe this type of investment would have been a far more productive use of one trillion dollars rather than tossing it into the banking system's black hole.  In any event, a synopsis of the plan that can be found on the Homeland Security Watch site:
