Dare we say, it? Mayor Ballard, we are impressed that you made it your first order of business to outline mass transportation issues and strategy. You understand that resurrecting the state's great interurban rail network, or something like it, is essential to the fiscal, environmental and sustainable success of our city, state and region. The country and world also must face up to the reality and the expense, as well. Cooperation is key - among all players, from the City-County Council to the Statehouse. We'll be watching and rooting for positive solutions to the very real problems we face regarding transportation and infrastructure. Your administration was innovative in its response to the overwhelming problems of combined sewer overflow. Now it's time to work your magic elsewhere.
