"Despite massive losses in similar transportation systems in Portland and Denver, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan, and President Obama this fall announced a commitment of millions in federal taxpayer dollars to a Detroit light rail line down Woodward Avenue. 'Detroit deserves a world-class transportation system,' Levin crowed. But light rail is sooo last century. In fact, it is a giant hoax perpetrated on the taxpayers of Detroit and the United States."
