A majority of elected officials from Aspen, Pitkin County and Snowmass Village voted Thursday to spend nearly $500,000 to study the use of buses versus light rail at the Entrance to Aspen.
"We've already spent half a million dollars, folks, so we have to build it or that money's just wasted." That seems to be what passes for the mind-set among politicians today. It's just a way to justify what they've had in mind from the outset; now it's "too big to fail".
I love this country, but I'm coming to despise what it's morphing into.
