Atlanta Notes Light Rail Progress In Houston And Phoenix

The Atlanta Journal Constitution bemoans its risk-averse leaders who won't follow more visionary cities' transit planning.

Amazing, isn't it, that those visionary cities are Houston and Phoenix - - once conservative bastions now on the cutting edge of light rail expansion, through local taxation.

I used to think that the main Milwaukee - - Atlanta connection was our sharing a baseball franchise.

Now I see that cities have something else in common - - we're both entering the era of expensive gasoline with inadequate transit.
