the light rail system equally so in LA under the same circumstances

For very limited sets of circumstances. All public transit in LA is based on the fallacious assumption that everyone wants to go downtown, especially the rail system.

Want to go from the Valley to the Westside? Go downtown first. In other words, go 35 miles out of your way.

I used to live 1/2 mile from a Metrolink stop, and work 1/2 mile from another stop, but I couldn't take the train because it only ran "inbound" (into downtown) in the mornings, and "outbound" in the evenings, and my work was in the opposite direction.

The light rail system in LA sucks. Period.

There was the row between Copiepresse and Google over Google linking to Copiepresse's newspapers. Google was fined and promptly stopped linking to the newspaper's sites.

At which point, IIRC, Copiepresse sued Google to force them to link to Copiepresse, and have Google pay for said "privilege".

Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage. -- Lazarus Long
