My wife and I voted (early) on Sunday. And this weekend, Jonathan Horak endorsed this blog’s position. Also, Chip Rosenthal declared his opposition and used very similar reasoning to that used by this author.
In the meantime, Ben Wear wrote about commuter rail again on Sunday in the Statesman, this time using my colleague Patrick Goetz for the lone pro-transit and oh-my-god-does-this-plan-really-stink perspective. I think I’ve fallen permanently off his radar.
Finally, in the twenty minutes or so since I submitted this post, a blog I’ve not read before called Grits For Breakfast added their endorsement, and the author made a very good general point about how perplexing it is that Austin voters don’t fight these Austin-bashing initiatives harder.
