Opposition to the CRC and light rail makes Clark County look like a group of backwoods gomers to folks who understand the big picture or who have lived lives in other parts of the country where tolling to pay for critical transportation projects has been a fact of life. - manthou — February 14, 2013 at 8:40 a.m.

I disagree. (don't remember the city names around Portland, so this is fuzzy & general). There have been two areas the Ptlnd mayor tried to push light rail into, and they rebelled. Other areas have seen LR fail. It did this in Los Angeles. The only place it actually works, and where it's used, is densly-populated, packed-in areas like Chicago and New York.

It just doesn't pencil out for our situation.
