Faith in the Idea but Not in the Executors

RECEIVED Mon., Aug. 6, 2007

Hey Louis,
    Just wanted to weigh in (again) on the transit issues (from Katherine Gregor's article July 20) [“Streetcar Desires,” News]. While I do believe that if Mueller is excluded from Capital Metro's rail vision, it will be near impossible to explain and get out the vote around Mueller. I will try. I'll be a supporter of expanding rail transit in Central Texas, almost no matter what, which is the frustrating part – to have unshakable faith that the promised land includes a working fixed-guideway transit system but deep doubts about the agency I must follow in that faith.
