I found this little tidbit on the Charlotte Observer website, where one of the minor Puppet bloggers weighs in on the transit debate in the Queen City.
Jeff Taylor, chief blogger at The Meck Deck, criticized the Charlotte Area Transit System's plan as too expensive and doing little to solve congestion. He said it was a "land-use plan masquerading as a transportation plan."
Only an anti-planning zealot from the Puppetshow would even begin to think that a transportation plan could be effective without concomitant land-use planning. But then again, we're talking about the kind of people who say building more roads is a way to improve the environment.
PS Stagemanager Hood has to be proud. Some of that $300,000 a month he's spending to manufacture opinions has just bought one his Puppets a few minutes of fame in the good old Charlotte Observer!
