Well, I guess that's one way to escape gridlock without resorting to expensive (and communistic) investments in mass transit:

Despite misgivings about noise and safety issues, the Bellevue City Council voted unanimously on Monday to approve downtown developer Kemper Freeman's plan to land helicopters on a high-rise office building up to five times a week.

See, the great thing about helicopters is, unlike rail, they're not rigidly tied to a permanent route. And only rich people can afford them.

Helicopters are our future!
