A column in the CharlObs contains pieces of the Charlotte Area Transit System's response to a JLF attack on the system. The columnist: "That brings me to the core fact about transit: No matter whose numbers you believe, every single trip is subsidized by taxpayers. It doesn't pay for itself. But then again, neither do roads." Don't worry, fair columnist, I'm sure the JLF will be trying to convince us that roads should be privately owned next week.
