You have the rare instance of our transit authority asking for slightly less money from a suburban county because increased ridership has reduced the necessity of operating subsidy. The county wants to give them more money for more service, but there are no more buses and trains to deploy.

So far our political leaders (the Democrats, that is) have failed to see opportunity in crisis. Though, admittedly, perhaps they're smart to wait until President Obama wields the signing pen. Food stamps, unemployment benefits, and... SUPERTRAINS!
