Bratwurst and Borscht

Actually, maintenance of the roads has been in the hands of a very high-level group of "meddlesome busybodies" ever since the Federal Highways Act of 1956 signed by President Eisenhower. Y'see, the idea was that in the event of a full-scale invasion of America, the nation's
troops would be able to make the nervous trek over to whichever coast had rampaging Krauts and Russkies shootin' our cats and dogs and baking us into bratwurst and borscht. Between the Highways Act and the fact that the federal government is Constitutionally obligated to regulate the roads traveled by the Postal Service, the Feds are pretty much in charge of the sum total of our nation's roads.
