Municipal Railway Approved -- December 31, 2009

2009 has been an exciting year. Many people are unhappy with President Obama's performance, but I think they had excessive expectations. I think he is trying hard against some determined and unscrupulous opponents.

The state's budget mess caused the governor to take away all mass-transit funding. This caused SamTrans to cancel the bus I have commuted on daily since 1995.

The Giants did better than they had for a while.

This cartoon, from the 31-December-1909 San Francisco Call, celebrates the success in the previous day's election of a $2,020,000 bond measure intended to create the Municipal Railway. The measure won 31,185-11,694. Thank you to the far-sighted people who voted yes.
