    All that work and we still didn't get the Olympics (none / 0) (#8)

    I love it when the intelligentsia feels that it is necessary to "educate" the public in order to spend money that a.) Detroit doesn't have, b.) The state doesn't have ("investments, you know) and c.) The federal government doesn't have.

    Okay, boys and girls let's jump into the DMC-12 for a short history lesson on mass transit in Detroit.

    Detroit HAD a light rail system. It began in the late 1800's. It was taken over by city government in the early 20's. Promptly ran into the ground and closed in the mid-50's.

    Game over.


    Detroit has two transit systems: D-DOT & SMART.

    Both are accurately referred to as "mugger movers" for good reason: crime follows established bus lines.

    Both have consistently faced management problems which requires taxes to be coerced by local government to sustain their business model.

    Both have their share of poor service.

    And both are cutting back what little they do offer due to lack of revenue.

    For a man who prides himself for being educated and thinking things through, if Gov. Snyder pushes for this tonight, this should eliminate any doubt on how educated he really is pursuing projects that have already failed miserably.
