  • Re Oakland airport contractor kickback welfare scam: just why exactly can MTC’s Steve “$5 billion Bay Bridge overrun” and BART’s Dorothy Dugger have failed indicted to be indicted yet? The billions of direct public-private transfers engineered by these individuals just keep piling and piling up.

  • I find the term tram demeaning, but in this circumstance, it’s totally merited.
