More on Dulles Rail -- Today's Editorial from the Examiner

From today's Washington Examiner... an editorial on the Dulles Rail project.

"It would be poetic justice indeed if the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority’s hasty takeover of Dulles Rail, cynically designed to further shield this $4.5 billion boondoggle from public scrutiny and accountability, turns out to be very thing that kills it by altering the complicated calculus used by the Federal Transit Administration to evaluate new projects."

"Dulles Rail won’t work without a circulator, but a circulator will work just fine without Dulles Rail. FTA’s job is to spend federal funds wisely and minimize risk, and the best way to do both is to give the money to a far more worthy project than this."

Not too much doubt about where the Examiner stands. How about you? What are your thoughts on Dulles Rail? Loudoun County Traffic wants to know.
