Wordbones Gets It

Local blogger wordbones had a great post this past Friday in response to this article in The Flier.

In his post, wordbones calls Liz Bobo out for saying she, “remains skeptical about Columbia gaining mass transit anytime soon because of high costs.” He calls her, “shortsighted” for not trying to lay the groundwork now for mass transit in the future.

He also lays into CA Board Member Alex Hekimian for calling GGP’s traffic study, “not credible”. Wordbones says, ” It certainly would be valid for Alex to have some objections to certain criteria in the study but to say that a traffic study prepared by a professional traffic engineer is “not credible” is both a little over the top and insulting.”

We agree on both points, wordbones. It always seems to be something with Liz and Alex, not to mention Lloyd and Alan. They kind of remind me of Rachael Dratch’s character “Debbie Downer” on SNL. You remember her, right. She would persistently add bad news or her own negative feelings to a gathering, thus bringing down the mood of everyone around her. “Feline AIDS is the #1 killer of domestic cats.” Waa Waa Waa.

I guess it’ll always be something with these people. This time it’s too much traffic. Last week it was not enough affordable housing. Tomorrow it’ll be something else. It’s always easier to find an excuse not to do something than it is to roll up your sleeves and get it done.
