Mass transit gushing in the media

Everywhere there's been a light rail line built recently, the media has gushed over it. Never mind that it's a limited system, designed for a minority of people to use. They just love spending taxpayer dollars on such things.

The light rail line in Minneapolis is due to open soon, and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Nick Coleman wrote a column gushing over the prospect. Here's the reply I sent in as a letter to the editor:

Nick Coleman's column on the new light rail line inspired me. I want to jump right on board. There's only one problem: It'll take me two hours to drive to the closest station.

Tell me again: just what will that multimillion-dollar boondoggle do for those of us outside the Cities?
