Railroaded

I've very much in favor of Austin having a good rail system, but the current proposal is really broken, and starting with it would sabotage any future work. Here are some pointers to some of the writings that convinced me to vote 'no' this time around.

I hope that they can come around and propose a good system for the next election, one that provides a good interior-Austin transportation service that express buses and commuter rail could link into. Taking the 2000 light rail proposal, fixing it to address South Congress concerns, and providing a good link to the airport would be a great start.
