Bringing traffic back to Main St. is mistake

I noticed that the plan to return traffic to downtown Main Street is progressing nicely, with the scheduled demolition of the Theater District Metro Rail station. Glad to see top-notch News political analyst Bob McCarthy assigned to cover this reprehensible pork-barrel project, a disgraceful waste of taxpayer dollars if there ever was one. I haven’t spoken to one person – OK, one – who thinks that tearing up Main Street is a good idea.

In about 10 years, The News will be doing one of those three-part, in depth, investigative reports on what went wrong, where all the money went and how many more millions will be needed to fix the mess we watched happen right before our very eyes. I hope McCarthy keeps his notes.
