Voice of the People
Wow. The first four “educational” mailings from the NWI Forum supporting
the South Shore Expansion made me wonder just how dumb they think the public
I shook my head when I read that environmentalists support it, because I have
spoken to people from both the Save the Dunes Council and the Sierra Club.
Neither group supports this project because they feel it will increase sprawl
and unnecessarily destroy green space.
I shook my head when I read about decreased commute times. Decreased relative
to what? Bicycle?
Today, I received my fifth piece of educational material. Today I did not
shake my head. Today I laughed out loud. Today I “learned” that South Shore
trains going to Valparaiso and Lowell are going to “improve our national
security.” I cannot wait to see what the next mailing teaches me.
