    I will be there! I’m very excited to see what they have to say and to put in my 2 cents. The material that MSI put together on the downtown Columbus website is very nice!

    The best donuts are definitively from the Der Dutchman in Plain City. I’ve never had one that even compares.

    I’ve been working on the site more, and I think its finally starting to take shape. Would anyone be interested in doing some sort of meetup that can be the jumping off point to building an organization and brainstorming ideas?

    I think that the Lancaster leg would be most utilized and therefore should be built first. If anyone has ever attempted to drive to Lancaster, Athens or anywhere is SE Ohio via route 33 you can see why I say this. Having said that I think extending that line to Logan, and possibly even Athens/Nelsonville would definitively boost ridership.

    In Phoenix, light rail is unexpected success
    Weekend riders turn downtown into destination

    DAVID KADLUBOWSKITHE ARIZONA REPUBLIC

    Phoenix’s light-rail system was projected to attract 26,000 riders a day, but the number is closer to 33,000.

    PHOENIX — Among the many detractors who thought a light-rail line in this sprawling city would be a riderless $1 billion failure was Starlee Rhoades, spokeswoman for the Goldwater Institute, a vocal critic of the rail’s expense.

    “I’ve taken it,” Rhoades said, slightly sheepishly. “It’s useful.”

    She and her colleagues still think the rail is oversubsidized, but in terms of predictions of failure, she said, “We don’t dwell.”

    The light rail here, which opened in December, has been a greater success than its proponents thought it would be, but not quite in the way they envisioned. Unlike the rest of the country’s public transportation systems, which are used principally by commuters, the 20 miles of light rail stretching from central Phoenix to Mesa and Tempe is used largely by people going to restaurants, bars, ballgames and cultural events downtown.

    I was at a Pat Tiberi event on Saturday and he was there. Pat introduced him as now retired auditor Testa.

    I’m reading Bleak House… never thought I’d read Charles Dickens willingly, but it is totally riveting.

    After attempting A Tale of Two Cities, then stopping after about a chapter I thought I’d never pick it up again. I then finished every writing by Jane Austen and craved more British Lit. and so I made my way back to A Tale of Two Cities, it being the closest thing to Austen on my shelf. I love it so much at this point I think it will be one of my all time favorite books.
