(my comment on the article)
Let me start this by saying I am not a 'right wing anti transit tea bagger'.
you must know I voted green party in the last election. Those people
that attempt to paint everyone who has opposite opinions from themselves
as "nuts' are nothing but the 'liberal' (for lack of a better word)
example of the same thing they accuse the tea baggers of. Intolerance
and closed mindedness.
No matter how many pretty pictures they
produce, no matter how many 'socially relevant' names or contests to
find names, this is a pork project costing $1.5 billion to a town that
already had transit service ,it adds nothing to the already existing
There are so many places that could have used that $1.5
billion to actually improve transit services rather than change them
from one mode to the other.
motivated spending of government funds by politicians. Spending the
wealth of the people but not in the interests of the people."""
ask yourselves, who exactly is this project benefiting? It's sure not
the people who use transit that much is obvious.
