Stuff I'd like to see someone to take charge of and make happen one day (preferably in my lifetime).  For things I want to do myself, check out hopelist.

...a LART: Los Angeles Rapid Transit.  This city is in dire need of a better public transportation system.
...a transition to hybrid and/or alternate fuel vehicles.  I loved that car in the Rose Parade 2009 that emits water vapor.
...motion sensors in museums, office buildings, and other commercial sites so the lights aren't always on.
...a female president!  It's time for the country to be ok with a woman running the state.
