While replying to somebody who was nice enough to give feedback from the ANC meeting I spoke at a couple of weeks ago, I ended up with this chestnut:

“Trying to fix this plan with streetcars is like trying to fix a gaping chest wound with a band-aid”.

Meaning: It’s still going to be a 3-seat ride (or even a 4-seat ride if you don’t take an extremely charitable interpretation of the route proposal); the last part of it will still be stuck in traffic; and the dense residential neighborhoods of West Campus and Hyde Park still won’t have any service of any kind whatsoever beyond the ludicrously misnamed Rapid Bus.

Shine On, You Crazy Diamonds.
