Infrastructure - Necessary, but not sexy

So, transit is sexy. Transportation needs such as roads, repair of potholes, etc., is not sexy. Water and water waste are not sexy. Energy is only sexy to the extent that we create windmills and fear nuclear energy.

The question is: How do we get citizens to recognize the importance of maintenance over the latest greatest - such as light rail or high speed rail. I say this, fully aware that one of the things I love about NY and DC is public transportation.

I'm not against. I'd be happy if we had a really effective transit system - but we don't and in the mean time our potholes are growing to be ponds, and our roads are even more congested, slowing every one down.
