CRC DEAD FOR AT LEAST ONE YEAR

Personally I am of the mind that eventually this will get built, however its an insult to the tax payers who are
not making six figure incomes that $170 million has been spent on this boondoggle so far and its all been for nothing. We've had enough of these boondoggle projects that employ some people (temporarily) but make other people obscenely rich. Trimet has several six figure executives that should get the boot now. (they will end up on the payroll of some contractor on the MLR project most likely). It's more than a little interesting that it was light rail  (and Trimet) that sunk this project and Portland's intractability to that requirement. It always seemed to me that if they just let the bridge get built as big as possible then light rail could be added some time in the future. But no, it had to be now or else. I guess it will be or else then.
