For those of you who may think that this person and her opinions about travel and transit may just be a phantom or a virtual creation:
Yes, Virginia...Not only is there a Santa Claus...but yours truly does have outside concerns. The interest in transit has been a lifetime thing, starting with riding the subways in NYC as a youngster.
This may not bring about world peace, heck this may not even stop some folks in the media from calling streetcars, light rail and their kin 'toonerville trolleys'. If it gets some folks [especially those clowns in the government] to actually THINK for once, then it was worth setting pen to paper, fingers to the keyboard and sentences into cohessive paragraphs.
