Bonehead Quote of the Day
"We can't siphon off one dime to fund some noble experiment in mass transit," said Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, who argues that the $1 billion expansion of I-75 to four lanes from Eight Mile Road to M-59 in Auburn Hills is critical to help the county attract more business.Wrong, Brooksie. Expanding I-75 will just attract more traffic, burn more gas, create more pollution, and make that area even uglier. Patterson is rejecting a suggestion that mass-transit alternatives be considered to widening yet another freeway. Not a bloody dime.
