8. You are describing what is happening in LA when you talk about the move

from the suburbs to the inner city.

Unfortunately, the streetcar tracks that ran down many, many of our streets were removed years ago. How I wish we had them now.

We live on a hill, and on the sides of the hills, the streetcar company built stairs to that the folks living on the hill could walk up and down from the streetcar stops.

Maybe we will wise up and rebuild some similar sort of public transportation system. It sure would clean up the air. And the walking would do everyone good.
