Pretty big news -- why haven't we heard of it?

HUMAN EVENTS ONLINE - Bush Administration Quietly Plans NAFTA Super Highway by Jerome R. Corsi:
"Quietly but systematically, the Bush Administration is advancing the plan to build a huge NAFTA Super Highway, four football-fields-wide, through the heart of the U.S. along Interstate 35, from the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., to the Canadian border north of Duluth, Minn.

Once complete, the new road will allow containers from the Far East to enter the United States through the Mexican port of Lazaro Cardenas, bypassing the Longshoreman’s Union in the process. The Mexican trucks, without the involvement of the Teamsters Union, will drive on what will be the nation’s most modern highway straight into the heart of America. The Mexican trucks will cross border in FAST lanes, checked only electronically by the new “SENTRI” system. The first customs stop will be a Mexican customs office in Kansas City, their new Smart Port complex, a facility being built for Mexico at a cost of $3 million to the U.S. taxpayers in Kansas City. "
How will this affect funding for I-49 in Louisiana? The port of New Orleans?

Let me say first off that Corsi is a kook. The sooner my self and others in the Republican party can get rid of him the better. He is currently allied with Tnacredo. Alos this hasn't been a big secret. I expect this is good news for Louisiana. I-49 should now be assured of extension to Kansas City that will jelp the port of shreveport as well. This should also help with I-69. I not expect the port of New Orleans would be affected in a negative way

Yeah you right. Corsi was one of the "swift boat guys" and if he's with Tancredo that explains the paranoid style of the article. (You know how I feel about Tancredo -- if not, look at the right hand column at the top.)
