Politicians: FAIL

A lovely blog, Trains for America, made this post today in reference to this editorial in the Baltimore Sun.

The sun is absolutely right in saying 
The loss of MARC trains and other transit cutbacks to falling tax revenues is not only ill-timed but a sign that Maryland must rethink how transportation is financed
 ... it is just unreal to me.  Are the states really this stupid?  Do we really not get it?

We need more funding, we at least need to keep our current funding levels.  People are going to be cutting back on using their cars to save on gas and turning to mass transit.  Now is the time we need more service, better service - to show people they don't need their cars.

This was just a quick and short rant - but I just had to say it - again
