Hypocrites 'R' Us alert

Minnesota Public Radio, also on Cedar, is even more worked up than the Rev. Paul Morrissey at St. Louis and the Rev. David Colby at Central Presbyterian. Those are only churches. At MPR, they have themselves convinced they are doing the real work of the people and the prospect of a train interrupting a whispery-voiced interview with a Bulgarian poet or throwing some folk singer's guitar out of tune has them threatening to move or sue or do something that could foul up the whole project.

Typical Minnesotan — spend billions on light rail and then have taxpayers subsidize it because it loses money. But, it makes the Met Council feel good because they’ve helped someone get a ride (while taking taxpayers for another one).

"Light rail is a boondoggle that is being shoved down our pocketbooks and we all know it and we can't do anything to stop it."

The same could be said for MPR...
