It boggles my mind that, in 2010, we still have urban mayors who are going against the will of their constituents in an effort to thwart rapid transit in their cities. How many other city mayors and city councilors take such a position? In Denver, Salt Lake, and Phoenix, mayors of outlying cities are tripping over themselves to get transit connections to their downtowns.

WTF?
