Picture Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington sitting in their favorite Philadelphia pub, discussing whether or not the government should be able to enact regulations mandating seatbelts in cars, rear underride guards on trailers, positive train control on trains and emissions systems on diesel engines.

The rest of the story, according to a Google search, is that it takes over 2 million steps to complete that thousand-mile journey.
