Cargo Containers to Cottages (June 19, 2006)

Cargo containers are flooding the country.  China sends goods in the cargo containers which are then abandoned in America because the cost of returning them unladen with cargo is too expensive.  The cargo containers should be designed and manufactured in China so that they can be converted into homes upon arrival in the United States.  The resulting homes would look like trailers and be derided as such.  The resulting communities might look like steel Levittowns.  However, as the years passed and each house was personalized, Levittown developed its own identity and community pride.  Cargotown may also develop the same charm and pride.   

 (The idea is admittedly a stretch.  Yet something must be done with the containers.)
