Congratulations! Jon Hall's "The Warm Fuzzies" (The County, Dec. 11) was excellent. It's about time the media got into the OC transportation scene. It's great to see material that is not from the spin-doctors of the Orange County Transportation Authority's (OCTA) public-relations department.
The OCTA staff, in its inimitable, social-engineering way, leads the county Board of Supervisors by the nose. Then the board responds, "But we pay the staff a lot of money; we have to listen to them!" If the "light rail" system for OC comes to fruition, it will be the largest perpetual tax anchor around county taxpayers' necks that has ever been seen. What a waste of funds that solves nothing toward relieving congestion.
