TKC QUESTION: SHOULD DAVID JOHNSON TALK TRASH IN SUPPORT OF THE TOY TRAIN KANSAS CITY STREETCAR?!?!
Personally, we like Mr. Johnson because he gave us a freebie t-shirt in the last XL size at one point . . . But he's clearly losing his patience with the critics of Kansas City's toy train amid some important questions raised about property values and promises to taxpayers.
Mr. Johnson's latest quote:
David Johnson, vice chairman for the transit alliance, said "everything (the Show-Me Institute) comes up with is suspect."
"They have had every intention to make it look like the streetcar sucks from day one," he said, "because they don't like taxes, and they don't like mass transit."
To wit . . .
THE SAME CAN BE SAID OF DAVID JOHNSON'S ADVOCACY WHICH IS TANTAMOUNT TO TOY TRAIN CHEERLEADING . . . BUT IN A PROJECT THAT COSTS KANSAS CITY HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS DON'T ALL SIDES OF THE DEBATE DESERVE THEIR VOICES TO BE HEARD?!!?
