Bankruptcy of Mass Transit

Go this forwarded by someone who said "seems timely given the rail system Wynn and his buddies are trying to ram down our throats" The Bankruptcy of Mass Transit:

"For most transit agencies in the United States, if they were to write a mission statement that is reflective of what they do, they would indicate that they exist for the purpose of serving their employees and vendors."
How much Will Wynn's downtown Trolley cost? And who will it really benefit? Speaking of cost, COST has research (PDF report) debunking of the touted benefits of the downtown Trolley.

Some people love these social engineering schemes in concept, but for themselves put their foot on the gas pedal not on a bus. As The Onion put it: "98 Percent of U.S. Commuters Favor Public Transportation for Others."
