Another Tarrant "Boon"doggle

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has a way with words.  If it was a better way, they'd have more readers.

The title of their latest "Other Voices" piece is called "Naysayers are wrong: TEX Rail a boon for Tarrant".

It was written by the chairman and vice chairman of the Transit Coalition of North Texas.  Now we don't know exactly what that is but if we had to guess, we'd say it's another COG type group where these "chairmen" are appointed by government officials and paid by taxpayers.  Are we close?

We're also guessing the numbers they use comes from data they purchased (with taxpayer funds).

According to them, 9,000 people will be riding this make believe train every day.  That takes us back to when the TRV told us 800 people would attend the drive-in EVERY night.

YOU can't make this up.  But they do...

If you want people to "get on board", maybe you shoudn't start your sales pitch with calling them "wrong".  Just saying.
