"No good reason to vote against monorail"

From a headline that sounds like the weakest endorsement ever, comes a really thoughtful look at the current ballot mesure, the state of SMP, and the monorail opposition.
The opposition's problem is that, in the eight years since Dick Falkenbury's original initiative, no other agency or group has produced any transit plan at all for the west side of the city -- even in the face of an impending transportation disaster. Far from competing with critical repairs on the Alaskan Way Viaduct, a vast upgrade in transit is an essential part of them...

The opposition has sufficient expertise at its disposal to present its own detailed plan by Election Day. Any vote of mine against the monorail will depend on it.

Considering the situation, I won't vote to keep doing nothing.
