Bruce Gaarder Highland Park Saint Paul MN [EMAIL PROTECTED] Ah, I'm busted. Figured out. My bias is clear: I support rail transit. Thanks for posting the links to the rentalcartours.net site, they provided some helpful clarification of where your point of view is comming from, an automobile. I am biased. I don't believe the auto dominated examples of Los Angeles and Atlanta are the right models for Minneapolis/St. Paul. I didn't see much on the Wendell Cox websites about buss transit, however. He seemed fixated on the automobile and its apparent ability to democratize prosperity. I remember my automobile negatively affecting my prosperity. Maybe the fumes were getting to me. Check out the following link to see where BRT is comming from: http://www.demographia.com/index.html I have to wonder if BRT is "effective transit" or just an effective way to thwart transit. Thanks for offering resources that reinforced my view on BRT. Matty Lang, Central --------------------------------- Yahoo! Personals Skip the bars and set-ups and start using Yahoo!
