    [The 90’s raw: William Armento]

    Raw tape for the award-winning series The 90’s. Videomaker Nancy Cain interviews William Armento, manager of structures for public transportation in Los Angeles, about the proposed Los Angeles subway system. He talks about the advantages of subway systems, and the difficulty of convincing some diehard car drivers to use public transportation. Despite this, Armento is still optimistic that everyone will make the switch if the public transportation is good enough. “I think the subway has a better expectation for survival in the future than the automobile.” He talks about the difficulties faced by public transit programs, as the Bush administration is threatening to cut all federal funding and force communities to fund construction themselves.

There’s too much garbage on TV but you can’t turn it off… how do you turn off a culture?” and “The kids have gotten the message in this society which is… ‘Say yes to consumption in endless amounts.’ That’s the real message, and that’s what TV is really about in this country. It’s tied to consumerism, not even entertainment… it’s all consumerism.” Commenting on the television news’ reliance on political sound bites: “If [Abraham Lincoln] were around today he would be reduced to ‘Read my lips: no more slavery.'”
